    Exclamation Kribensis aggresion


    0 Not allowed!
    hello,
    i have a mated pair of kribensis who were getting a-long for a few months.
    a week ago my female was being just a little to aggresive sometimes with my male as they had their second batch of fry.
    right now as i was looking at my tank i found that the female was in the top corner and lost all of it's color.
    a miniute later i found out why.
    the male was just being SO aggresive towards the female.
    i know that i should remove the female.
    but i have no place to put it. i have one other tank that is over-stocked and is only a 10 gallon.
    i really don't want to return it.
    i did do a water-change today. could that have caused something to snap. (they were getting a long well before the waterchange which was 5 hours ago)
    what should i do
    i hear some people say, "i kept a goldfish in a bowl and it lived for a year."
    they don't know how lucky they were and all goldfish live at least 15 years in proper conditions.
    that is equal to saying my human lived in his closet for 5 years!

    Some males get overly aggressive when they are protecting their fry/eggs. In my Texas cichlid tank if I didn't have dither fish the male would attack and kill the female to satisfy his need to protect the fry. I suggest removing the eggs/fry. This should calm him down long enough for you to figure something out.
    When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
    Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.

    I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
    Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
    Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

    I'll give that a try, but why would he not be like this for the first batch of the fry and a good part of the second.

    do you have anything in the 10 gallon that the kribs would attack?
    could you not just transfer some fish from the 10 gallon into the krib tanka and the female krib into the 10 gallon? a bioload swap of sorts?
    of course, this will only work if the male krib will be less aggressive to whatever you move over, or whatever you move over is fast enough to get out of harm's way.

    hi,
    i haven't done anything yet because they seem fine and are right next to each other taking care of their fry.
    both fish have their colors on and both have very small cuts in their fins. (male had them for a while now)
    i am leaving today for a trip and i'm wondering what i should do.
    should i take them out just in-case?

    Whatever happened the first or 2nd times around apparently doesn't apply to this time - since you are going away, I would recommend following mommy's advice and remove the eggs/fry - I would assume you might be coming home to a problem if you don't but that's your call obviously.

    do you thing the fry can survive in a gallon of un-filtered water for 2 days?

    I don't know about putting the fry into an unfiltered/uncycled tank - I'm also not sure whether putting a krib into the 10gal tank to separate them would work either (I'm not familiar with the temperament of those fish).

    I do know that when a fish has a cut, keeping the water very clean is the best way to help it heal and prevent infection - no need to do anything special to the tank unless the cut isn't healing or looks infected - but hopefully tank maintenance is good enough that infection won't even start.
