He may be the most dominant. Give it more time another may change too.
Not at all. Subdominant males often retain female coloration.monisaab said:I had bought a few auratus juveniles in the beginning of January. They were somewhere between 1/2 to 1 inch in size at that time.
Within these 2 months or so they've grown to between 11/2 to 2 inch size. One of them has changed to male color recently. The others have retained their original coloring. Does this mean he is the only male in the lot?
So you're not entertaining the turtle tank idea anymore?monisaab said:Ok so i have noticed another one of them to have started looking a bit dirty...
No aggression so far Nina_b...Nina_b said:Let us know how the agression pans out. The recieved wisdom will have us believe mass death will ensue in your tank shortly.
Typically yes. I think it has more to do with dominance. As your male auratus matures, he will probably become more dominant. Thus, more egg spots.[/code]I noticed that my male auratus which previously had only a single egg-spot now has two of them... Do the egg-spots increase as they mature???
