Lifting behavior may be rare among the Agonidae and is possibly limited to the genus Hypsagonus, since long-term personal observations of captive agonids in eight other genera (Agonopsis, Ocella, Odontopyxis, Bothragonus, Xeneretmus, Agonus, Pallasina, and Anaplagonus) have not revealed any similar behaviors.
