  1. Default Dominant Boesemani male

    I have a very dominant Boesemani male, his colours are very vibrant, and he flares at the other two (which are also males), like crazy! Luckily I have a fairly planted tank with lots of hiding places. Is this ok? I recently got two more Macculloch (spelling) Rainbows, and he chases them too. I am assuming because they are new, and he thinks he runs the tank. Not sure what to do/think of this guy. He doesn't nip fins or cause any visible harm to the other fish, but I'm sure it's probably annoying to the other fish. Opinions please...

    Ornery little cuss, isn't he? I have two males and they are friendly as all get-out. Seems to me if females were added, he might even have more to fight about so don't know a good solution here. People often keep all male tanks.

    yeah, all my bosemani's are males, I wouldn't even think to add any females.
