The pair have excavated the back corner and between the coconut and the rock. I sat watching them and the female would do her body shake/shimmy to get his attention to follow her or attack him and drive him away. Both tend to stay very close to the coconut not venturing past the large rock. The solo female on the right ventures all over avoiding the pair.

I've been feeding freshwater krill daily and now my male has disappeared. Saw the female in one of the cocohuts and she wouldn't come out even for food

I have the two females and one has been with the male while the other healed up from combat. I moved the female back in with the male and she instantly started flirting with him. He responded by pushing on her, flaring his fins, and flaring gills with his mouth open. I had to remove the female that had been with the male as her fins were tattered. The second female had to be removed after a couple hours as the male had driven her from the bottom of the tank. The two females are in separate 29g aquariums.
