fronnies dont like hanging out

Recommended Posts

First of all hello to all i have been a member of this forum for a while now. I really enjoy the site but have never posted anything so i thought i would start by seeing is anyone can help me with my colony of 6 bar burundi's

i have 2 m 5 f frontosa in a 5*2*2/5 sized tank with a couple of other fish eg electric yellows , gold comps

My concern is all the fish get on great with one another its just my fronnies seem to hate each other! Everyone of them hangs out by themselves like loners and every time they come close to one another they fire up at each other then swim back to a distance. My dominant male swims around the tank giving everyone a hard time all day its starting to make me worried that one or 2 might die from being under constant stress. Why dont they group up, hang out together and get along? I have had 2 females have mouthfuls before so they do breed.

i have a very rocky/cave aquascape so there are plenty of places for fish to hideout if threatened. Also have a 6*2*2 sized tank which i will be going to transferring them into when my stand is built but cause they are only 12-16cm and still growing i havent been in any rush.

Do i need more in the colony?? maybe when i sexed them i mixed up females with males and the ratio is out?? if anyone can shed some light that would be great!
