Cardinal Bangaii

I have an older CB and I just purchased a baby CB. The baby is being pursued by the older one and there is some aggression from the older one. I am looking for some safe advice. Thanks all

You could continue to have problems. In small groups they sometimes kill each other leaving only a pair. Since you have an unsexed adult and baby it's hard to say

They probably won't pair. So the larger will continue to pick on the smaller one until it dies.

Can I set it up in a acclimation tank?

I got my bangaii separately, ones a good bit bigger than the other. There was some chasing at first, but that mostly stopped after a week or two. They've both gotten bigger over the last 4-5 months, and they don't always hang together, but they do sometimes. Now there's only some rare, very short term chasing. Bangaii are difficult to sex based on what I've read, so trying to get a mated pair could be tough. They're usually in tanks with a bunch of them at the LFS. Good luck!!

I feared that may be the case. It's just hard to say sometimes, but usually best to buy an established pair, just keep one, or get a group if you have a large tank. Sometimes you get lucky though
