So Borelli are often better in a Trio. If you are working on making a pair... they are not like a Ram or Angel. They do not make permant pairs that I know of. Normally, they mate when the female is prepared to mate... and then the tables often turn and the female drives the male away after the fry are swimming (or was it when eggs were fertilized... don't remember).

This is not always a quick event.

Anyone else with more experience with Borelli?

Male fish sometimes get angry at a woman
They live together for 5 days a day.
When will they become partners?

So one thing I would point out is that your Opal Borelli tank has less line of sight breaks (less plants and decor) than many others. I would add some more line of sight breaks, so she can hide easier. The tank to the left of the Borelli tank is a little closer to what I am talking about.

With cichlids you get some extra aggressive fish sometimes. You just need to add extra cover usually. But sometimes the matches also do not occur. I would add the mirror as well.

I mean, should I put more decorative plants or something?
Yes. So if fish are in two different places in the aquarium, they should not always be able to look and see the other. That makes it hard on territorial fish. That gives them a target for aggression. The more cover, the less aggression normally.

Should I add some kind of soft fish or something?

It looks like you have several people in there helping. But that video shows more decor which is good.

Sadly only speak English and broken German.

Awesome setup. Giving me ideas...
