Ambienttech Posted December 19, 2021 Share Posted December 19, 2021 Two weeks ago I picked up from my lfs a male and female apistogramma agassizii double red. They are in a fluval flex 15 gallon fully planted tank for quarantine with plans on putting them in my planted 75 gallon tank. The first few days the male was the dominant one but wasn’t being aggressive. I went out of town for work for 2 days and when I returned I found the male sucked up against the bottom filter return. Thought he was sick and dying and was going to remove him to an isolation tank and that is when I saw the female attack him. At that point I put him in a small fry box just to get him away from the female. Left him in fry box for 24 hours, he colored back up and was looking good. I decided to try and let him out of the fry box and watch their interactions. Immediately the female attacked. She isn’t defending a certain area she is chasing him down no matter where she sees him and is ramming him. She seems to be out to kill the male. I know the female can be aggressive when defending eggs but I have searched the tank and there is no eggs to defend. Anyone have any advice on how to go about getting these two back in the same tank? I bought the pair in hopes one day they may have fry but at this point I can’t have them in same tank. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
