what size tank do you have? it could be that he's one of the males establishing dominance.

maybe its another male he doesn't want to mess with?

So what do you think i should do? Just let them work it out?

djembekah 01-14-2013 09:16 PM

I'd keep an eye on it, but yeah, working it out is something angelfish need to do. They're cichlids, so they are going to have to nail out a pecking order.
