    My appistogramma have grown alot since i got them.. Now they are starting to be the size of my platy.

    And well recently my male platy started stalking them/chasing them. He doesnt bite and backs off when the apisto notice him. But he goes right back at it

    The platy never did that before. Atleast no one is getting hurt.

    The apistos are getting bigger. Since they are getting more territorial,
    the Platy is probably trying to get the apistos out of his territory. Don't know what to do though.

    The platy is not the biggest fish in there.. If he was territorial i would have imagined him going after the male molly Or the dg. Tho maybe im wrong

    Wait... Nvm my platy is just excited. Saw him trying to mate with the apistogramma.. ^^;

    Im glad its not aggression xD
    It also explains why he went after the apistos. They are big enough to catch his fancy now
