Help my kribensis are nipping each other
 
Hi all,

I have a pair of kribensis that lately breed. The fry are still with parents and are 8 days free swimming. The problem is that the pair is nipping each other on the lips but there doesn't seem to be any injuries. They both have light pinkish bellies. The stay near each other often. About 2 days ago the female had a cloudy eye but after one day it was gone (i think it was injured) Water quality seems fine. Also the male has his tail a bit torn on the upper side. They like to run after each other but also love staying near each other with the fry.

Is this normal or fighting or breeding again?
