PostSubject: Male attacking Female...   Tue Apr 26, 2011 7:28 pm

I have 2 plecos that ive had in my 30 Gal tank for months now.. I beleive one is male and the other is female.. I bought them when they were young. I noticed today that the female is pale in colour and is skinny like she is starved, and the male is grogeous and colourful.. I watched them for a while during feeding and the male actually chased away the female.. and made her go hide.. Im assuming thats why she is so thin and sickly looking.. What can I do to stop him from bothering her.. do I need to get another one? Is one male and one female bad to keep!?

They are not the only fish in the tank.. and you shouldnt put more food in the tank than you have to cause your just going to pollute the water...

I don't think OwNz meant that you should put extra food in, but when you do feed try and create more than one feeding area. So if your feeding something like cucumber or zucchini cut the piece in half and put the halves at opposite ends of the tank or near their favorite hiding spots. Very Happy

100% right mate thankyou i ment split the food you already feed into 2 and 2 different areas of feeding to try stop the fighting imo itink this is spawning action as my male chases the female when he wants to start breeding
