@ Otterfun, I know ... and my little Suma (below):
would be a great start to this. I actually thought my little baby was going to be a girl, but since Suma has been with us, I've been rethinking my first instinct. For one thing, I can see that when they are side by side, Suma is way more "round" than the baby, who is super pointy, which I have read is a characteristic of females. For another, the baby was flaring the other day and I think I saw a tiny beard. So we'll see. Right now, my immediate plan is for the baby and Suma to go into a 10 gallon tank with a divider in the middle, but if the baby turns out to be a female, I might try to do a sorority. For that, I think I'd want a fifteen or twenty gallon tank, so then I could put two males, or two more babies, in the split ten gallon. Oh, the possibilities!
