It may look peaceful but don’t be fooled. The male is a wife beater! If she ain’t putting out he’s beating the crap out of her. As of yesterday the divider went back in the tank.

Beautiful pair! What size tank is that? I'm trying to figure out where to put bifa's in my fish room...

Gorgeous fish! Unfortunately divider may be the only way. They often will breed straight through it if you put a good flat rock on the female's side.
