    Hi all

    I was hoping someone could help me?

    I have a pair of kribensis and they spawned about 2weeks ago. Unfortunately all the eggs were eaten

    Next time I'll take them out

    But now it seems as if they are fighting. The male chasers the female but not in a courting way.

    The female just darts away and hides away. It almost as if the have become un-paired if that makes sense

    I have no idea what to do to get them back to friendly ways?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated

    Only thing you can do is to get more females so the male's attention is spread out between the different females. Otherwise your one female will get stressed out and possibly die.
    A 1:3 ratio should work.

    Really?

    I might have to do that, but I thought kribensis paired for life?

    What about a change in diet?

    Well, at the end of the day, Kribensis are Cichlidae so they have a similar in-bred behavior I guess. A change of diet, I'm not so sure. But try to feed variety is usually what is preached around here.

    I see

    But do you know why they are behaving the way they are?
