    male betta aggressive towards females & only 1 tank

    It is what it is now, just keep up with big water changes and try to divide the tank and separate him, or move him to a bowl as others suggested. In the meantime you could post an ad to rehome some of them and see how it goes, there is nothing to lose if you try :)

    male betta aggressive towards females & only 1 tank

    10 gallons for 5 bettas and tetras. That's quite overstocked right now. Is there any way you can return the 4 female bettas? Also I would start doing 60-70% water change every 2 days minimum, since there are a lot of fish for the size of the tank and see how the tetras start doing. You could...

    male betta aggressive towards females & only 1 tank

    How big is the tank? Is it tall or long? Did you cycle it? I assume none of the fish have been quarantined, did you notice any signs of illness like white spots or white growths on any of the fish, or springy poo, bloating? Do you know the parameters of the water you use and test the water in...

    Honey gourami breeding questions.

    The sponge filter was in the main tank for a few weeks so the QT was pretty much instantly cycled and I pick up the waste and uneaten food with a turkey blaster daily, plus the honeys are pretty small and don't produce a lot of waste. I also add some seachem stability for 7 days.

    Correct. I had no issues so far, I test the water every 2 days.

    Honey gourami breeding questions.

    I remineralize RO water for the main and the QT tank, so they are pretty much the same, I do a 40% water change the main tank every 7-10 days and a 30% on the QT every week if I have fish in it, if not, then I store it away, sterilize the sponge filter and seed it in the main tank in case I...

    I think by the time they are ready to spawn and the fry to hatch/free swim, the quarantine will be over, I will move the adults to the main tank and leave the fry in the quarantine tank.

    Another update: The female is more brave and swimming around, the male spends most of his day staring at the bubble nest. The last hour though, I've noticed the biggest change in their behaviour. The male is getting close, flaring and wiggling his tail at her and trying to make her chase him...

    I don't have a net, but I can get one if he gets more aggressive. She doesn't look stressed, she is just swimming away, ignoring him and does her own thing 😂 😂. They are very fun to watch, to me it looks like this, Male: ''Hey girl, I am so strong and handsome, check those fins.'' Female: '' I...

    Another update!!!! He is still chasing her once in a while, but she is not swimming away immediately, he also tries to go closer and wiggles his tail.

    Anyone have experience with an aggressive goldfish?

    My ex landlord had a common goldfish and a weather loach (pretty much an inch each fish) in a 28L and the goldfish was picking on the loach till it died. I took her with me when I moved out and upgraded to a 70L (the best I could do at the time) and I kept her alone, she grew to about 7inches...
