I have had 2 angelfish in my 75 gallon for 3 months now in a 75 gallon and after adding 12 tiger barbs (i know the issues, but right no now aggression and once i see aggression i will transfer) the 2 angelfish strangely began to lip lock. I dont know their genders but is this them pairing up in order to defend against the barbs, or a shock of space filled and now fighting for dominance?

My Angelfish were doing that and the next thing I knew there were eggs on one of my Amazon Sword plants. I thought they were fighting, but they were actually breeding.

It could be two males fighting as well.
