Additional Lyretails to heram?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I started with 2 Lyretail juveniles and one turned male. Every time I add more females they never make it. The male doesn't seem to want them. I tried adding 3 healthy strong females at a time with no luck. What do you think?

It's very hard to add more sadly. Might have to take the male out for a day and then try putting him back in, hopefully he will leave the new females alone.

The male probably knows he will get a lot of additional nagging from the new females, and figures it not worth the headaches..... But yeah, it's hard to add after they have established themselves

From research on other boards. It's a toss up. It's hard to exactly say why the new fish perished. Could've been a few things. Being picked on by the male, the current female or even fish illness.

Theres always the option of removing the current anthias and purchasing the desired amount and starting fresh.
