Kribensis pair fighting?
I have a male and female kribensis in a 45 gallon tank, and I've had them for about....a month or so.
They've been getting along and get colorful when they see each other and following eachother around, no aggression. But this past thursday I left to go to my dads house and when I came back monday the female was at the top of the tank and the male was patrolling the bottom. Occasionally the female turns red and approaches the male but he shows his colors and chases her off, and nips at her until she turns a pasty color and hides behind the filter.
I have no CLUE why they're suddenly acting this way. I called a pet store and asked the "fish people" and they told me that they were going into spawning mode and the male was just picking on the female. They also said I should get another female to lessen the aggression on the one I have.
Im not really sure what to do..
