Thread: Couple or not?

  1. Default Couple or not?

    0 Not allowed!

    I have two Geophagus Altifrons Cameta.
    I thought they were a male and a female, because they have always swam toghether and being "cuddly" towards each other. But I few days ago they started to fight. A LOT! They try to mouth lock each other etc, and for a while I had to take one of them out of the tank to calm them down. Now I've put it back, but they are still very aggresive towards each other. But they don't fight as much, since the bigger one chase the other one away as soon as he/she sees her/him.

    Is this proof that this is not a couple at all, that they are both male? Or can it still be a couple having some problems in their relationship? Or two females even?

    No, it isn't. They can still be a pair.

    Is it normal for couples to behave like this, or is it a sign of stress? Tank to small? Set up not good?

    It's normal for them to fight once in a while. just make sure it doesn't get to bad.

    In fact it may even be that they are considering getting a family ;-)

    I'm currently having this issue with two H. Notatus Severums. When the tank light is off there's no issue. even during the day (living room well lit) I see the sevs and geo swimming together and going about their business. However, light on, One sev and the geo DOMINATE the other sev. :( i feel terrible... they leave the rainbow cichlid alone too. so weird.

    Dude, Take a look at the date the post above yours was posted... It was seven and half years ago in Feb of 2005.

    You might want to start a new thread for your issue and Please take a closer look at the dates of the threads you are responding on know what I mean?
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
