Haha well she has her new delta, plus her crowntail pair I bet if she had room she would ;) ;) hehe

I'm tempted to rehome those mean Haiwaii Platy and put all females into the 30 gallon tank upstairs. It's got live plants aplenty.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

So, I cleaned the jars again and this time I sectioned them all off by gender. I have A1 to A26, and then it starts at B1 (labels for jars) and goes up. I have about 35 or so jarred.

There are slightly more males than females.

Telltale signs:

- Shape and length of body
- flaring habits
- beards
- body color
- ventral fin length
- anal fin length
- submission lines

Most of the males have darker bodies, or have colored up a lot faster than most of the females.

Most of the females have tiny rounder bellies, while the males (most) have seemingly inherited mom's thicker body, but without the bellies.

The ventrals on the males are fuller and longer, the females have shorter ventrals.

Anal fin on the males are longer, by double at least.

Flaring and beards go hand in hand, the males will flare, expanding their rounded caudals, showing off or attacking through the glass while the females show submission stripes, and try to dart through the glass excitedly.

There are a few "unsure" ones, who were put on the female's or male's side. There is one male with a lighter body, and a few females who are a bit darker than the other females.

EDIT: The green/gold is a female, considering the body shape, ventral length, etc.

More pics pleeeeeeeeeeeeease *puts on best puppy dog eyes* also completely random question here-is the curse of the early spawn logs true? I know a few members mentioned they posted logs before they started to breed and everytime they did that the breeding went wrong, but everytime they waited the breeding worked?
