Where I'm at low is 25-26C and high is 28-29C. On exceptionally hot days water gets to 30C and the ones under direct sun may reach 31C.

To compare experiences, I've never had 100% of one sex. My best is only 90% - first time female during hot season = 90% male. This is my highest percentage of males and I don't always produce this percentage. Fourth time (or more) female during the wet season = 90% female (also my highest for female result). Most often I get a 70-30% male-female during hot season and vise versa during cold season. But the more I breed the female, the less males I get, regardless of temp. (4th time or more female during hot season = around 50-70% females).

Wow ! That fantastic parsentage ! I guess I am in Japan, and many may friends worry about this. Maybe our temp. is reall low. That's why I have many female. I like female, but I would like to have male too.

Thank you for your informations !

Oh, you did breeding last year. I am glad to waiting for your report.

Yes, I did post abotu my older female thread. But I gave up her. When I was in younger male and older famele in my tank. They're fighting, and older female won. Younger male seems fin-rot.

Thank you !
