I just caught my little kenyi trying to do a shimmy dance for the large Kenyi. The big one was like "Get away from me" and swam away. I have no clue what any of their genders are.
Edit: As I sit and watch them these two and squaring off. The Big Kenyi pushes one away using that kiss method ( but doesn't fight or attack) Then the other one keeps trying to shimming for the big fish and that other two keep attempting to square off.

They're likely just determining who the boss is. My males (and even females) will shimmy and fight like that. They'll swim in tight circles then lip lock until one or the other backs down.

This is why I ask. Normally a territory dispute they will be at the bottom of the tank doing tight circles and lip-locking. They are doing this out in the open in the middle and now the big fish is shimming at all the other fish.
