View Full Version : Stress?

12-22-2004, 11:25 PM
Hello everyone!

I have a 400 liter tank, with a two Copadichromis azureus (and other malawis). The problem is, the male is always chasing the female around but she's not interested at all. She always tries to get away and hide somewhere. Eventually he will find her, and the chase will start all over again. This must be very stressful on her? Or is it natural behaviour? Is it an indication of something being wrong in the tank? Is there something I should do?

It sounds as normally behaviour from the male however this does not meen that it's good for the femal. You should always keep about 4 females for every male to give each female a break

I used to have an other female and he totaly ignored her (she's dead now). But maybe he would pay more attention to 3 new females.
