Striata Behavior *PIC*

I have a very gravid looking female striata. She has been very cranky for the last couple weeks, chasing the other striata and the Darios away from her. This afternoon she started this shimmying in the face of the other Striata. She'd shimmy then kind of go onto her side in front of him. Then they'd chase a little and she'd poke him in the stomach a couple times and start shimmying again. It looks something like I've seen in the Zebra Danios when they are mating. Is this mating behavior or something else? Any ideas??
