Is Daisy a boy???

She (he?) was in a tank with about 20 other females, and livebearers. I didn't see an agression then, and only a few flares in my female tank, but, the beard was quite a bit bigger than my other girls, and I can't see an egg spot on him/her.









I put him/her in isolation for the moment. He/she has been in my female tank for a full day with no incident, so I'm hoping it is indeed a girl and I'm just being paranoid.

Looks like a male to me. Probably no signs of aggression or territorial issues because he is adapting to his new invroment. Where did you get him if you don't mind me asking?

Can you get a critter keeper for now to separate him? Probably cheapest, or maybe a drum bowl around $8. Unless you feel he's fine in the tank for now. Good luck.

Yes it's a male. If he is doing ok in the tank and not been nasty at all he should be fine. As long as there is enough plants for the females to get away from him. You might even get a spawn or two but no fry will survive. Me and oldfishlady have both kept male / female tanks with great success . I hope this helped :)
