Ok, so I ended up going with this male, Bruno. He grew way faster than the other two. I put him and the flowerhorn together with a divider yesterday. (They got into a fight) in the process.. today they seemed to be intrigued with one another so I took this little partition out to see if they would fight again. They didn't. He went over to where her "nesting" spot is and checked it out and she let him. They swam circling eachother and side by side for about 20 minutes before he went back to his side. I put back the partition and will do it again tomorrow. Any suggestions? Am I doing this right? Sorry for the messy tank, they just ate...

I kept them separated for about a week. Bruno pushed through the divider one day and roughed up Chun Li a bit while I was out. Fixed the divider and they stayed separate until a few days ago I took the divider out and watched them. They were swimming together happily and both came up to eat and has not fought at all. I got home tonight and noticed some changes. Looks like they cleared the caribsea out and away from the terra-cotta pot (not the saucer) and their reproductive parts are on display.

[Chun Li's fins are damaged from previous invasion of Bruno. No new injuries have occurred since.]

Dig it? Took forever to come from China and then I couldn't get all the bubbles out of it but it makes it look like an old movie so I like it. Amazon BTW.
