Rehoming cobalt blue make

Postby ironspider » Fri Jun 05, 2020 3:37 pm

So my 55 is crazy lately, there are two fully grown cobalt blue males that are bigger and more aggressive by far than anyone else in the tank. They fight each other (no damage though) but they chase the two females and one juvenile relentlessly. They also chase all the others but less so.

They got to a yellow lab and almost killed him. Just this morning, they got one of the females, I moved her to a small tank, she’s almost dead.

So I’ve decided to heed the advice of you guys and get rid of one of the two best looking fish. It kills me to do this though. They are so pretty.

Multiple tank syndrome.

The females are supposed to be just as colorful as males. Do you find that to be true?

Ah MTS, got it. Yeah, my gf is of sounder mind than I so she keeps me in check.

Absolutely not. The two males are a bright baby blue, super bright. The females are a darker more subdued blue.
