Default Lip Locking Females

I was sold 1.3 wild Kigoma Fronts. A large male ( 10" ) and 3 females (4-5" ). Do the females generally fight amongst each other? 2 of the so-called females were locking lips after i did a water change. Does anyone think that they may be smaller males or just bickering females?
thanks for any insight,

Eli

LOL Charles

I can see why she would want you all to herself. You should probably continue to humour her in that respect... for your own health.

A wise man once told me...

A woman has to have a reason... a man just needs a place...
Give the woman a reason... and she'll find the place.

Also..

A woman has to be happy and feel good.
To a man it's like being hungry.. just part of living.


Soo.... Keep her happy... and give her lots of reasons.. and you will be a very happy guy.

Don't do those things... and Confuscious say:
You're gonna eat dirt and live a h*llish life.

LOL...
Those 2 guys... were completely right!!!
I should know...I'm a woman.....
