kribensis divorce

Okay so i think my kribensis cichlids are no longer mated. For weeks they shared a seashell together, but now the female is moving to a pvc pipe. Shes goin back and forth between them and she wont let the male near either one. What happened? What could possibly have gone wrong? Any suggestions/ solutions?

Pairing in cichlids does not mean this will be permanent, it's not uncommon for fish to kill one or another after succesful spawns either if one or the other finds the partner weak or not worthy. Watch for further aggression but keep them together for it's possible they will still mate when the conditions are right but monitor their behavior closely.
