My ph has remained the same 7.6 throughout the entire cycle and it still remains at 7.6 so its stable.
I have some artificial plants and decor which they do pick at but its all in the lower 1/3 of the tank. Wouldn't introducing females mean I'm potentially going to have some reproduction happening? That isn't what I bargained for
They seemed to have calmed down a fair bit now, when they get close to each other they begin a bit of chase but separate off and then chill out on different sides of the tank so hopefully they've come to some sort of agreement
