👍Nice!
Raised hundreds, see it all the time, normal sparing behavior. In fact I have 4-6 dozen scattered in grow-out tanks. Should be ready to sell in about 2 months.
Good Luck!
Glad it’s normal these two are really challenging each other at the moment it’s kind of funny but not sure how it will end , about 10 have decided to live in a group while two are living life with the adults competing for food ect

They are fighting because that is what most cichlids do. Time to start separating them.

I get that and I don’t plant on keeping them all just waiting for an inch or two more so command a better price but why when my adults don’t fight? There is plenty of space for them

Oohh! I see a sale coming up. :hey:

Four acara’s for £10 is a pretty good price. Over here in the USA, they sell at $15-$30 a piece.
