I've sold my 5 F1 Kavalas...
But...I also bought 2 new WC Moba females to add to my group!!! :bounceye:

Right away I notice a big difference in aggression...Why is this? Does anyone know?

The Alpha male who chased everyone away ALL OF THE TIME now occasionally just "swims after" one of the females.

You know what the best part is? I got a hold of a guy who had 2 females from the same "batch" where I got my WC's (initially a group of 20).
He had only bought 2 Mobas and they were fighting all the time...He saw my tank and said he wanted the two females to get a "good home" and sold them to me for 40 USD!!

I checked up on his story and it checks out!

Thank you guys for helping me make the right decision! (will miss the Kavalas though)

The aggression has ceased because there is more females to spread the aggression around to.

maybe a bigger tank would benefit you a lot.. it should lessen the aggression more IMO..

The best of both worlds! An excuse to get more females and a larger tank! I wish I had that problem!
