I have a question that hopefully someone will have some tips for. I've got a pair of J. Transcriptus living in a 33 gal. Neither is full grown but a month or two ago they started to lay eggs and raise fry in the hollow of a piece of driftwood in the tank. At that point I cleared the tank of other fish and let them do their thing. Everything was fine until water change time last night. We did everything as usual, didn't move any of the scenery around in the tank but when I came back to look at them later on in the evening the larger of the two (likely the female I guess) was driving the smaller one away from the nest, despite its best efforts to get back there. Today the smaller fish is on the complete opposite side of the tank with no signs of any reconcilliation . The fry of all different sizes are still doing fine in the hollow but Id like to get the lovebirds back together if I could. Does anyone have any suggestions for doing this? None of my cichlids have ever had serious disputes before lol .
