Buntbarsch. Das Weibchen stimuliert das Männchen durch Stöße in die Seite, dieses antwortet mit Körperzittern, das immer häufiger wird.
The present film shows the courtship of an isolated pair. The female is the more active partner; she tries to stimulate the slightly larger male. She stumps him repeatedly in the flank, to which he reacts with a slight body vibration. With increased reaction to the female, the male begins to display himself in front of the partner.
