Breeding is a very challenging and involved process. It is something you need to spend at least several months researching before you even attempt. bettysplendens.com is a good resource for breeding info and genetics.

Welcome to the forum......

When conditioned and ready to spawn-usually they don't harm each other-but its not uncommon for either of them to end up with some nipped fins and missing scales-while using the proper size spawning tank with lots of places for the female to get away from the male....some cases its the male that can end up injured with really aggressive females....and some cases they can get killed...it varies and why its so important to research and have the right setup with a plan B.....anything can happen.......spawning this species isn't always black and white or text-book...lol......they love to keep us on our toes......and spawning is the easy part....rearing the fry successfully can be more of a challenge.............
