PostSubject: my new peppermints fighting   Tue Jul 30, 2013 11:11 am

Hi guys, I purchased a breeding pair of peppermints about a week or so ago. They are 'supposed' to be a proven breeding pair however over the last couple of days I have seen my male peppermint come out of his cave, find the female and chase her around everywhere in a violent matter, doesn't look like he is being too friendly. Most times she stands her ground. is this normal?

Sounds very much like he is trying to attract her to his cave, boy chases girl, shows her he wants her, & then she comes & find where he lives....

Fishy love... a little more complicated..

They have started acting weird now... My male is out all the time and my female is always hidden, used to be the other way around!

I have no good advise, but I just recalled what I saw not so far ago in LFS: 2 adult albino MALES as breeding pair!!! I guess it's politically correct now Wink

i put a new log in the tank yesterday, a massive one with a hole all the way through it, they loved it and now the male has dug a hole in the gravel right up the back of the tank that goes underneath the log and he has been showing off to his girl all day!
I have also bought another BN...couldn't help myself, a very pretty male marble Smile
