The two orchid dottybacks in my Evo don't seem to like each other very much, but I couldn't find them this today, even at morning and lunchtime feedings. When I took a flashlight and peeked under the live rock, I saw both of them circling around each other. Is this spawning behaviour?

We need a video, this would be so cool if it was mating behavior

They both left said cave (which was under an eleven pound live rock) shortly after I saw them in it and have gone back to their regular behaviour. Looked like they were swimming head-to-tail from the little you could see, though.
