EBR Pairing/Mating Behavior

Ok, so I thought I had 2 males but I've been eyeing the smaller one in confusion and then tonight they were doing this very interesting side to side shimmy dance in the tank when the lights were off. And now they're hanging out pretty close, which is new.

Were they setting boundaries or deciding that they could be a real thing? If the latter, does this mean they get their own tank or are they cool with others? Angel is the only other one in there at the moment but they were quite curious about the shenanigans going on.

If you wish fry survive, its best to give them their own tank. Angels will devour small fry like most other species.

Which certainly alters plans. I was NOT expecting to have a breeding pair of anything on my hands.

If you don't want to keep the fry, let other fish snack on them.

From what I understand that might happen anyway with their first few laying attempts. It'll be interesting to watch.
