HI all, I'm hoping someone has seen the same behaviour as I'm about to write about. I have a pair of black Angelfish that have been spawning every couple of weeks. With each spawn the parents got better and better until the spawn was reaching the free swimming stage. Unfortunately, once the spawn was free swimming, thre was a free-for-all from the other fish in my community tank and they never lasted the night. So I moved the pair to a 75 litre quarantine/breeding tank where they continued to spawn every couple of weeks. First spawn was taken by fungus and all subsequent spawns never even hatch. I'm guessing that the smaller amount of water mean more fluctuations in my water quality and will keep trying. But what I'm writing about is to ask if anyone's observed the male getting extremely aggressive with the female 24 hours after they've spawned? And when I say aggressive I mean WOW. Even for Angels this seems violent. (And this is already a pretty aggressive pair - when in my main tank)The female has been beaten up by the male with visible damage to scales and eyes. SHe's completely cowed and hasn't eaten since I noticed the situation. The male is completey dominating her. Mock charges, actual charges. Is he know defending the spawn from the female? He's never done this before. Is it perhaps a residual 'hang-up' from when the pair spawned in my display tank and had to constantly defend the fry? I'm considering moving the female back into my display tank. ANy thoughts/experiences?
