I cannot post any pics, no camera and phone take them but refuses to mail them.. had the company test my service and they could mail, so the phone is broken, lol.

I talked about him/her in a thread, named her SHARK, because she chased everyone for 1. 5 days, so I gave her timeout. then put her back in yesterday and all seemed much calmer, and today too.

But then i looked up and she was completely wrapped about the blue, held for a bit and then took the eggs to the nest.. She did too, but then she started stealing them and was swimming with them then dropped them because of the comotion. I just took all girls out all fake stuff, etc. i dont know what to do.

There arent many eggs. he/she flares really big, and from the site it said to see if the skin is over it also as thats a male, but i cannot tell.

the hangydown things arent longer thatn the others, like my little boy. But that flare is huge!

walmart doesnt carry males this small either and not halfmoon, or his tail is a big D I was thinking he/she could be a placket, I didnt take time to go back and try to figure it out. she was always moving..

also, my tiniest female kept going to her, and just sit there for a bit then when SHARK turned to her she swam away really fast, i thought that was odd.

i thought he had an egg spot too, but crap im so new to these i dont know know. But no bubble nest, and I had him in a divided tank with another girl before going into the the 10 sorority together, and I never saw him/her flare, till in the tank.
sorry im so verbose.

I sat in the play pen with my gerbils today. Little goofy balls of fur. They'd crawl under and around me like I was a jungle gym xD It makes me happy they're not afraid. I wish they were still enough to be petted. They are ridiculously soft!

You will always be my best friend, .

Aahnay, it really sounds like you got a male in your sorority. Don't do any water changes or anything to disturb the water surface. Maybe even turn the filter off. After about 24-36 hrs you should see little fry hanging from the eggs.

That's true. If she doesn't, then just suck up the eggs with a turkey baster and discard.
