    Thanks Danny but to be honest, these guys are young and stupid. The female is running about with her tube down and the males are saying she mine, no she mine etc. A bunch of randy teenagers lol. I am keeping an eye on them and hope the one fish getting beat up on doesn't have to be separated. I suspect there are three males and just the one female across the group.

    Lots of sparring this morning. I think the two fish doing most of the sparring are females. Appears both tubes are down. One is missing scales. Thoughts?

    Pat I'd move the cone to side of the tank.. if possible add one to the other side.

    So added an extra cone and it helped for a minute. Might need to add a form divider.

    I'd let them sort it out Pat.. odds are once a pair picks a cone it should settle down and the pair will spawn.. Give it a day or two since you just moved the cones

    Maybe add a little salt to soothe as well Pat since slime coat & scales have been disrupted.

    Great idea Danny but didn't think about that last night after their WC. The dominant female was making dry runs up the cone and she was flanked by both males. I turned on their moon light and left them to their play. I haven't checked on them this morning yet.

    So three of the four are ganging up on the fourth one and there is still lots of bowing, butting and staring/peaking at one of the cones. I think the group of three is one female (can see her tube) and two males (based on behavior). Anyway I have a foam divider coming later this week in case the aggression is still strong.
