Wow, that's crazy! I'd send you some but it seems my male refuses to hold eggs and thinks swallowing his kids is the bees knees...
Hope you find some good ones. I live right by the Wet Spot and I know they have some other paired up and easily sexed albimarginatas in their tanks that they're selling on Aquabid. You could ask if they can try and send you a reverse trio.
It seems my pair like to get it on every two weeks but the male has been consistently swallowing, and today marks his third time eating rather than holding. Is there anything I can do to try and convince him to hold onto the eggs? I'm feeding blackworms pretty heavily each day. The only thing that's been off is that the temps have been getting in the 80s (Fahrenheit) during the day this week.
I did manage to get some pictures of my female. They're pretty shoddy quality, but my phone was the only thing on hand and I didn't want to bother them much. My female really colours up nicely when she's in the mood. Her tail gets this nice rusty orange and she gets really clear vertical stripes, she kind of reminds me of a samurai gourami. ^.^
The second one is right after coitus (you can see the male's enlarged belly from all of those eggs!), so she's still pretty coloured up. You can kind of make her out in front of the male. Like I said, awful quality, but man I love those stripes. The male surprisingly doesn't colour up when they're in the middle of mating or afterwards. The first one you can still see some of that orange more towards the base, but that's way after they had sex. She was begging for food at that point. I'm actually surprised they mated since she got sucked up the gravel vacuum two days ago and had some cuts!
