How to deal w/spawning aggression?

Post by Ichy » Mon Feb 19, 2007 7:43 pm

Please can anyone help? I'm havnig some problems with my pair of chocolate cihclids. The male has become too forceful for the female . I have a post in the SA section about what is happenin. Basically the female looks ready to spawn but the male doesnt seem to want to wait for her to pick a post. The pair are divided right now , but I want to get them together to get a spawn . Any ideas?

If the pair are very different in size use the incomplete divider method. That way the female can freely move from one side to another.

It's considered poor etiquette to post the same subject in two places...
