Are the males paler than the females naturally?Fogelhund said:It looks like a female to me. The finnage being shorter and more rounded would be the clues.
If you are looking to breed, I would start with new stock, as the quality of this female isn't good. Very pale colour.
All those metriaclima species in the same tank? 75G? I would not save fry and I'd be afraid they would fight. If you try it I would get more females (4 or more for each species) to spread aggression, metriaclima are not wimpy fish. :thumb:firemedic1169 said:I've found a place online where I can get sexed fish in the species I'm looking for. I'm going with 3 female metria cals for my male, 1 male and two female RZ(decided my RZ was female), 1 male and 3 female Metria sp. Msobo deeps, and I'm also contemplating 1 male and 3 female Red top Hongi. That would give me 18 total fish. I'm going to add a eheim 2217 to go with my current penguin 330 biowheel HOB. I figured I need the extra filtering with the full tank and I can use the 2217 when I get a bigger tank.
