Prior to the first pregnancy in my tank (venustus pair) all the fish (I have a mix) came to the top of the tank to feed. Shortly after noticing the holding venustus all the fish no longer did this feeding behaviour - they would be scared of my presence and only feed when I wasn't near the tank. At first I though nothing of it - however the DAY she spat out the fry all the fish once again came back up to the tank to feed and have done so everytime I have fed them the last three days....coincidence? don't think so...has anyone seen this before or have any ideas as to why?

I have 12 fish in a community style set up; 3 venustus.

The holding fish may have been triggering their panic response... I've seen that a number of times.
