Hi

I need some advice. I moved my angelfish couple to their own tank a couple of months ago, they laid eggs, and a few hatched and survived. My problem is that the male, who was always a bit aggressive, has now started harassing the female to the point that she spends most of her day hiding behind some plumbing. The male's attacks are getting worse, so I'm thinking of moving them. I'm planning to move the male to his own tank. Here's my dilemma. Should I move the female back to the 75g tank that still houses the third angelfish, who I think is male, to the 40 breeder with harlequin rasboras and cory cats, or leave her in the 29g with the fry? I think the rasboras are too big for her to eat, but I seem to remember that harlequin rasboras get easily stressed with a predator in their tank. I do have an option to put her in a solo tank too. I also could put the 3 fry in that tank and leave her in the 29g, eventually setting it up as a community display tank.

Any thoughts, options that I have missed, or other advice appreciated.

I would put both males in the 75g. They will have enough room that there won't be too much craziness. And they mostly get nuts when there's a female around. Generally, I would remove the parents from the fry, so if you have a third tank for the female that would be best for the survival of the fry.

Old Post. I ended up moving the female to my 40g tank. I then moved my other angel to the 40g. I removed the female swordtail to the 40g. I then moved 3 of the 4 male swordtails to the 29g with the aggressive male angelfish. He started harassing them, so I moved him into his own 10g tank that I will eventually upgrade to a 20 X-high. I restocked the 75 with more corys, kuli loaches, and a couple of bristlenose plecos. I plan on putting the 2 angels from the 40g into the 75g and upgrade the 29g to a planted tank.
