I have 6 reds in a 125g over the last few weeks they keep laying eggs and aggression goes threw the roof. Last week I had 2 different reds guarding eggs tell I siphoned them up. This is happening 2 times a month or so. How do I stop them?

Horney little basterds.

sounds like my convicts i use for feeders lmao my guess would be just try to make there life a little harder for them move the tank stuff around try to get them to re claim territories and maybe it will side track them a little bit

I have done that and 2 weeks later more f*cking eggs.
I've had my reds for around a year
it almost always happens after water changes.

i would say add some java moss or something in the tank to give some good cover, and then just let the ps do their business, the weak ones will die and be eaten and the strong will survive in the moss, then take them out grow them out a bit for say a month, and then sell em to p fury members.

Then sell the breeders, and buy you some bad ass fish. Piraya, terns, cariba, or a serra.

Doesn,t anyone think its funny that while everyone else is trying to breed there p's, he does it on accident. and cant stop it. I would sell the breeding pairs and replace them with some other type of pygo's, and cross my fingers. Goodluck.

There tank raised red and I don't think it's that hard to breed them. But raising the fry maybe more difficult then getting the fertilized eggs.
I think for next few months at least I will keep'em and not remove the eggs just to see what happens.

I'm surprized nobody thought of this already. I thought this is common sense.

Remove your female piranha!!!!!!!!!!!!!

characteristics of a female piranha

-Probably had more color then the rest of them
-usually alot more girth around their bodies
-usually alot bigger also
-the piranha circling the nest"fanning" is the male
-pick one and remove him/her, if they still breed pick another one untile you get the female!

I thought this was common sense but again I could be wrong. Good luck bud
