Well, I used to think I had the 2 sweetest Oscar's in the world. The loved on each other and they were always together. Today. That came to a screeching halt. I had to intervene. Amd eventually I built a divider to keep them separated. Any clues what happened? It's a 125 gal tank and they get plenty of food and water parameters are checked daily. What can I do? Do I let them fight it out? I do to know. I am so worried I cannot sleep. I truly live these two. Every since I put the divider in theybhave been laying on bottom. Of tank not moving to much or eating.

If they are mouth wrestling let them go to it that is their pre spawning behavior, very rarely will it end in death, but you can lose a bit of water out of the tank, big fish and lots of activity.

No, don't remove or change anything, just remove the divide. The way you have your tank set up is what has made them feel like they do about each other.

Cichlids are interesting beasts, how big are they now, they look like they must be around 8-10 inches
