If it is I really dont know what to do I bought them a few weeks ago...shes all on her own if she is!!I have a tank currently cycling for a betta fish I feel awful for her if it isI think that's a female
This may be the case I know it sounds bad ..but I would like to think this is the case compared to the alternative of one female in an all male tank!It's hard to say from the pictures because you can't get a good look at the analfin, but to me the body shape and pattern looks much more like a male than a female.
It's not uncommon for males to gang up on a particular male, probably because it's a weaker fish.
It's a 40 litre and its ovev stocked by 4 fish!had know choiceYes, that a male. I had to rehome 2 of my guppies cuz they were constantly being chased by other males. How big is the tank?
Feel his stress I'm may succumb before him at this rateSounds like at this point it really doesn't matter much if it's male or female. It will need to be separated from the others. Either rehomed or returned. With the continuous chasing, it will succumb to the stress.
I thought that myself...the uncycled tank idea but I may be in town tomorrow while working so could look for a divider I hadn't thought of that thanksDo you have a breeder box to separate him in the main tank for the moment? That would be a quick temporary solution until you can figure out where he's going to go. Another possible option would be to put a divider in the tank so he has his own area (one that allows the water to flow thru freely.)
I wouldn't put him in an uncycled tank at this point - those unfavourable conditions, along with his already high stress level, will do him more harm than good.
Do u have a food safe container the u can make a temporary holding box for him? Or even a big plastic cup with holes poked thro so he gets fresh water and float it in the tank or wedge it so its in the tank but he cant get out? Sorry if that doesnt make sense, but it would b til u could get a divider.Thanks mate I just wish I had one now!!i hope the big guy can wait long enough..pulling my hair out..
