Well, I put 7 females into the ten yesterday. It wasnt pretty. 3 where tied to each other, and I had to separate them. Then the SHARK went for shark2 . It was so fast, SHARK bit off half of sharks tail. o.O only leaving 2 rays on the half she bit off.
They fought for a long time, before shark2 decided to hide and run, instead of fighting. Then SHARK went after the other one she was after before? Pop fought her too. They circled, then boom SHARK had Pop by the nose!
I just so freaked out.. i used the turkey baster and just put it in the water, nothing. I poofed a little water, and nothing.. Poor Pop, she was just held there. By what, one scale? I dont know.
I poofed harder and they SHARK released, but the fight continued. Finally Pop gave up too and hid.
Today, SHARK just cruises the tank and chases any of the other girls. Doesnt matter who it is. She will be after one, and it will dart and hide and then another will be close and boom she is after that one.
I think SHARK is too aggresive.. and I think perhaps shark2 may also be too agreesive. Maybe not.
Also I think SHARK used to be my fav and I had named her Mouse! But then again, the last female I brought home, all sisters, looked just like Mouse. I really dont want to separate them, but if this continues to tonight i will.
Now, should I pull shark2 out and give her a salt dip for her torn tail, and anal fins?
SHARK has her tail, but has a spot on her side, and most of her anal fin is gone.
Pop is white, or gold, or both. She has a few black specs on her and a black stripe almost in the center of her tale, body to to tip? Do fish scar? I mean a different color?
God SHARK was just chasing another one. I would think she would be so exhausted by now! She flares so big Id swear she was he. She is black with blue and has red sparks . Ive been trying to see if when she flares she has that male skin over it, but i cant ..
Aquarium magnifiers? do they still have those?
Also, can plackat females be in with non-placket females? After reading the female type recognition link above, I may have 2 placket sisters. They have very short anals, but they may be clamped more now too.
Ok thanks very much.
Pop just tried to eat the snails tentacle o.O lol. Poor snails, hahahaha
