View Full Version : Queen Angel losing to a bicolor

Now I have seen everything added a Subadult queen around 3.5" or so to my 375 tonight and the resident 3" Bicolor angel is not happy about it at all. Even funnier my large angels are completly ignoring the Queen. Turned the lights off for the night and aggression has subsided andI am prepared to box the queen tommorow if the agression doesn't subside though in my experience in cases like this it ussualy does the next day. Figured I would just share to show how unpredictable fish can be.

its normal for the large angels to ignore the queen due to its size. i would take out the bicolor, wait for the queen to settle down, then put the bicolor back in.

Maybe because of physical and color similarity. But its funny, a Queen being bested by a C. bicolor!

Still a little aggression tongiht so have the Queen moved into a isolation box in the tank a week or 2 and everyone should ignore her.
