Stripping Females

Postby Dr Bob » Wed Jan 22, 2020 12:16 am

I have a 125 gal tank stocked with peacocks. I recently stripped 2 females of eggs and tumbled them. I am having trouble identifying females holding eggs. The two I stripped exhibited “loner” behavior and did not want to eat when I fed the rest. These were fairly obvious. I was sure I had identified a third but after I caught her it was a false positive...Any additional suggestions? Thank you
