2 of 4 Jack Dempseys paired up, how long before the others suffer?
Iv'e got four JDs in my tank. one male and three females. They are about 3.5 inches long each. The male has "hooked up" with one of the females and they are beginning to pester the other two. How long do I have before they suffer? I am going out of town for a few days and I want to make sure I shouldn't get them out asap or if I have a little more time. I found a mom and pop that will give credit for them so I will be taking them there I just don't have time to get them there before I have to leave. Should I put them in a different tank for now? I will have to start up a ten gallon as that is all I have extra. It would get a mature filter on it from another tank so don't worry about the new tank syndrome hurting them. Thanks for the advice.
