Most of the females I've had have been dark like that, but I did have one that was not. I've never had a dark male.Is the female always darker than the male? How are you keeping them (tank size, mates, broods, etc)?
She's always bulging like that any more. I was hoping they'd spawn under the current situation, but seems like it's not going to happen. This was my attempt at keeping something with a 'brichardi type'. A success only in that both sides tolerate each other. But with no temporalis breeding, they're obviously not comfortable, so not really a total success. There are actually two temporalis living under the rocks coloinzed by the pulcher's. I think they've adopted them as pets or something, as they don't seem to mind them all that much.Is she about to lay eggs, or is she always that bulging around the middle?
