I have 2 firemouths in a 30 gallon long tank just got them a week ago.They have big caves with lots of hiding spaces.The problem with them is one of them is pretty aggressive towards the other and getting a lil bit worried i am pretty sure they are both males but not totally positive one is a little brighter than other but i think its was from stress because they were both the same color when i got them. I am just wondering if i should seperate them or just wait it out any advice would help thanks alot

Can you post a pic of your tank and the fish? What are the dimensions of the 30 long? Firemouths are very hard to sex. Generally the males have a more pointed anal fin but this is not a sure fire way to sex them. If there are aggression issues you may want to remove one.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty
