I have separated them already, treated them with pimafix and have put a different pair together in the breeding tank. They are in a 10gal with the water lowered to about 4 inches. Lots of floating plants and about 83-85 degrees, bare bottom and a sponge filter. When I am not breeding, the females live in a community tank and I have the males in separate smaller tanks.
This particular female seemed fine with the larger male, I guess I just didnt think the size would make that big of a difference... I learned the hard way. She also picks on one of the smaller females when they are in the 53 gal tank, although they usually just stay at opposite ends of the tank...I may have to keep her separated altogether though...
