kribensis being aggressive
 
i have two young (inch and a half) female kribs in a 26 gallon bowfront with a two inch male krib. supposedly they are a schooling species that enjoy each others company, but the male wants nothing to do with the females. since i added them hes been hiding, a drastic change from his previous behavior, and whenever he sees one of them he chases her away. whats the deal?

kribs are generally aggressive and have a teratorial nature i have one breeding pair two spare males and two lots of juvi offspring (fish shop wants them at half adult size so they will be going soon)in a 30g there is always some sort of dissagreement even between the breeders going on but nobody comes to any harm breaking up the tank with rocks,wood and plants helps

most my sources say theyre peaceful and like to school as long as you dont have more than one male...
