Yea.. but doesn't that happen even when there aren't males around? Like, that's my point, it happens either way.. right?

Yeah, it happens any time the female can see the male. Other than the eggy thing, it's fine to keep 'em together in a divided tank. :)

Hmm.. Maja can't actually see a male right now.. But when she was beside Gilbert for a couple months she never got eggy.

You're lucky. My girl must've been a hussy or something because she egged up within a week.

Hahah. Maja never seems interested in any of the boys. I just feel bad that she's my second oldest and still in a 2.5g and the newest has 5 gallons in the divided tank. Seniority is everything around here!
I wonder if she's been on her own too long to be in a sorority.

lol. My girls flirt with Swish and Zeddie (maybe Reuban too but i dont think so) through the glass all the time, and haven't gotten eggy! Unless that was what peach was, rather than an over eater- she's so normal sized now!


also. My wisteria keeps getting dug up. little brat cories. almost all the eggs that were spread around the tank have been eaten now though. guess who are fasting today? x3

All you could do is try. You'd probably have to add her last.

Yea. She seems like a jerk though. She flares at the mirror. xD
Sorority is my project after the 90 gallon, okay? :D

Yeah! You need a sorority!

Some girls are just as aggressive as the guys. My girl Lyssie is that way. She attacks her pellets and her thermometer.

Ah! My husband got me the kiddie pool I had been wanting! Woo!
I just wanted to sit in the water and play with my toys. xD I have little plastic fish, sea horses, sting rays, turtles, etc. ... and a beach ball.

You will always be my best friend, .
