A pair of loved up fish – fittingly called Valentins toby – shared a kiss.

Shazaad Kasmani was swimming at the Kisite Marine Park in Kenya on February 8 when he spotted the marine couple.

Appearing to court each other, the pair move back and forth, circling together before planting a kiss on each other.

Shazaad said: “This went on for about three minutes until they finally went their separate ways.

“I had never seen this before as we usually find Valentin’s toby fish busily swimming around the reef rocks and corals.

“Watching two of them interact this way was very interesting indeed. 

“I was initially fascinated by their cute little dance as I wanted to capture this behaviour on camera, but when the two fish kissed, I got excited for them.”
