I've got 6 rbps in a 125 and 4 of them are showing breeding colors and behavior.....but i've also noticed a big increase in aggression between the 4 of them......i've never had any problems with fin nips or fighting and now they are all tore up since this has started....is this normal behavior during breeding???

Completely normal. With succesive breeding, the aggression will ease, but it's always a part of mating. Ours are usually not very aggressive anymore, but yesterday one of the males got his upper lip bit and it looks like he has a white moustache. Watch them closely and be ready to remove any that get beat too bad.

With succesive breeding,it may also increase as the instinct becomes more habitual.Yes this is perfectly normal.
when the male from 1 pair first bred, he thought of the eggs as no more then just poo.Now he would kill anything that goes near the nest including me lol.

add peat moss/ black water extract. In my experiance highering the temp a little out of the ordinary and adding some feeders increases the chance of them breeding.

I'm a very experiance breeder. But I don't post here. I will start posting here and sharing my experiance and what I know with people here that need help.
