Sorry to hear that Kevin. If I had to guess, it sounds like your fish got older and more territorial, like a lot of fish do, and something had to give. With all the fish I know of, it's better to have only one male of each, and more females, so no one female gets all the 'attention'. I'm sure you know all this though.

It's probably near impossible to sex them as you're first collecting them, so you may need to edit them down later, once you're able to sex them. The big tank'll help, and maybe go with a lower density stocking.

As many naturalists and environmentalists have suggested, we should set aside our arrogance,
our desire to conquer and control everything, and walk hand in hand with Mother Nature. -Walter Adey
