Axolotl Eggs, Larvae & Breeding Eggs everywhere, how did that happen? Will it be albino or wildtype?

Default Mating Dance

So I have a really quick question. I have two Axolotls around 9 months old according to the DOB from the shop. I believe they are both males. My questions is would the males still do a mating dance even if there is no female present in the tank?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks,
Steve

Ha ha ha. Maybe I should edit the heading. By mating dance I mean how the male will lay the spermatophores and lead the female around. I saw them the other day and the one was l was following the other one while he was laying them. Was just wondering if they would even bother to do that with no female in the tank.

Wow! I've never had a male so haven't had the pleasure of seeing this. If you have a video I'd love to see it!
