    Thanks to all for the responses. I have a 135 gallon with 4 RBP's + 2 Terns that are all in the 8" - 11" range. They are fed daily. The tank is planted with plenty of plants, driftwood and rocks. I have had some of my fish for years. Recently(last few months) they have become very territorial and are frequently fighting. I was only gone a few hours the day this happened.

    Sorry to hear about that--that's a shame--have you tried moving the scenery around to calm them down for a while?

    Thanks. I'm wondering if a couple of them are trying to breed and maybe getting aggressive?

    I wish they would breed, that would be awesome. I would have to give away all of the babies, don't have room for them all....

    Thanks for asking! They are doing awesome. the fighting has slowed down quite a bit recently. It doesn't appear that they are breeding though : (

    Good to hear!! R.I.P. to my Red Belly 315146

    Anytime i wanted mine to satrt breeding i would just do cold water WATERCHANGES and lower the level in the tank by about 20%

    ...adding a spary bar helps too..kinda like the one that moves the BioWheel on the Emperor Filter

    You could give it a shot!
