But today the one I though was for sure female stemmed to have some bubbles lining one edge of the jar. Very small thought. She looks to have an opivistor though so I'm thinking still female for her. I'll start a thread sometime with pics of them.
Lol. I go through this every day It drives me nuts. Plus the fry tanks have relative peace. Its not just this spawn, Ive seen the genetics from the last few generations of this line and the females can have long anals for girls and much larger than average dorsal and caudel fins so that makes it hard too, Most of the bad boys removed so there are a lot of pretty peaceful dudes still in the fry tanks. Oh and your fish look good B. I just cleared up more space for tanks too so looking good. I like it when I see a nice bubblenest in a jar so i know for sure. I have a hard time seeing well enough to judge a real or not ovipositer as well. Its a curse I tell ya!
