That would be nice if I was paid to take care of fish. Fishcare + arts, I'd be pretty okay with that xD

Hey LG as I've notice there have been some sexing problems with this batch. What is the best way to sex the females. The cello I got of you looks to be male. It flares up with a beard when I put a mirror in front of it a does some body wagging but no nest. While the other looks more female (smaller fins thicker body. And when put a mirror in front it flares with its gill, and a small beard which doesn't really come out as far as the males. But as far as I am convinced its female, she has the start if a bubble nest around her jar. I know some females do this so I am very confused.

Is it best to just give time?

Lol....yea, time is best. I've noticed males in this spawn have very long anal fins, so start there. I havent spotted oviposters on mine yet, but check on yours.

I know males also have a spot were a females egg spot is, and when I look at the one with the nest it looks to have a white spot but it is small. And could be either a opovistor or just the males bump whatever it is called. I can post some pics here, or start a thread. But they are from CJ.

Some males can have fake oviposters, is true. I dont think CJ would mind pictures, especially sincecwe all have experience with this spawn

All right. I have a couple right now. But they don't show the egg spot. I will try to get some if her flaring late tonight or tomorrow.

And the cello I suppose is male. I will get better pics of both ASAP. Hopefully flaring with full spread.
