Comment from Dave Behrens on photo #7292
It is interesting (and perhaps phylogenetically significant) how some species of the genus Mexichromis show ‘trailing’ behaviour just like all species of Risbecia which belongs to the same family. Even though it is smaller in size, the rear animal is sexually mature.
