Can someone confirm this is the Kribs mating dance?

Hi all,

Relatively new to Kribs and noticed the female showing some strange behaviours last night. Every time the male comes within sight of her she does some wierd shaking thing.

I'm hoping this is a part of the mating ritual or something because if not this is probably one very sick little fish!!

I took a recording of this which is located here:

Any advice or confirmation would be much appreciated.
