It was always my female who chased my previous male to be fair. At present, there is a lot of chasing her vs him and him hiding or swimming away from her. How long do you think I should give them to see if they tolerate each other?He is an A borellii.
I have come to believe females hold the power in this group of fish. If they are testing each other, there will be wrestling and chasing. If she hates him, there is no fighting. I have seen females barrel into the male's throat, between the gills. He's dead before he reaches the surface.
Some males have also killed females, though never with borellii. I've found them fairly relaxed. They are one of the few Apistos that can live in groups in an average tank.
Really appreciate your help! Thank you
