  9. Hey all, I know that neons battle out their hierarchy but everything i have read says a 2-3week period at most, mine have been at it for over four weeks there's 10 of them in a 3 foot tank and water parameters are good? One of them only has a tiny bit of his top fin left as the rest has been nipped off (but he's ok swimming and goes after other fish) and they are constantly at it.... I thought they were a peaceful schooling fish, i was looking forward to watching them dart around together or did I just manage to get the psychos? Would appreciate any advice!
  10. I just had a look in my tank and i have 2 male b/n fighting over a log and i think i saw a female in there. The logs had 1 small male fanning in it for days and now the bigger lazyer one has come over and appers to be attacking the smaller one. Should i do anything or let it go and see what happens . The tank has 2 ceramic logs and a bamboo log in it. With 2 males and 2 females. Thanks
  11. Hey guys, I have 2 oscars in a 4ftx2ftx2ft tank, they have been in there since I bought them around 6 months ago. They have always seemed to get on apart from a little pushing here and there, a little lip locking, but never anything more than that. Recently I gave there tank a good clean out, and yes i moved some of there gravel around but I did try to leave the larger rocks and other features in the same spot. I came home yesterday afternoon to see the smaller of the 2 with a nice chunk taken out above her nose, She seems fine and is still eating but I have noticed that they are a little more aggressive than usual, and certainly more jumpy. So 2 questions, Is this war wound something i should be concerned about? and Should i think about separating the 2? It just seems funny that i have never had any major issues with these fish, even after cleaning there tank previously, but now all of a sudden they seem to have a problem with each other. any hep will be appreciated. Thanks, Tim

  15. yesterday afew hours after my water change and some redecorating of my tank, two of my calvus started fighting (sorry it's abit hard to see with the driftwood there)my pepps started bumping heads and some brichardi were chasing each other more then usual. This morning the 2 of the brichardi started getting in on the calvus fights as well... ok i know it's not the water change (or maybe it is?) i'm not worried about the pepps they have tough heads and brichardi are fine. but i'd hate one of those calvus, should i isolate one? one those those calvus has been picking on the other calvus since he was first put into the tank, only yesterday was there any retaliation... or could this be part of a breeding ritual?

  24. I have 4 dolphins in my tank, the 2 larger ones (about 18cm and 20cm) both changed colour, almost black, then their at it. They start circling each other, about 30cm apart then they come together at the mouth, aggressively, smash their heads on the glass then start circling each other again. I removed the larger in to a bucket for 30mins then introduced him but they started up again so now i have the smaller one in a fry saver (in the same tank). i dont have another heater or an air pump otherwise id put one of them in another tank Anyone know why they would be acting like this? They have been relatively peaceful fish up until now and ive had them since xmas. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  25. got some frontosa, had a male on his own and bought two i thought were females, he is showing alot of aggression towards both, is this normal any ideas?
