I think the holding females will be fine in the partition tank.

Hey, sorry to hear that.

Off topic, but may I check what's your water parameter for your 5ft tanga setup?

Your 16inch planted tank looks good too...I wonder what lightings your using. Mine seems to be growing poorly in my 15 inch cube. : )

Yes, they definitely need more practice in that.

They are still young fishes anyway.

The males have become even more aggressive towards each other lately.
More spawning on the way.
