Gorgeous fishies!
But yes, are you sure Cocoa's a female? She has awfully long fins... Does she flare her gills all the way and have a big operculum (beard), like a male? If so, good chance she may be one... :P

Youlovegnats.......I was wondering the same. If it's female and gets bred to a long tail male......the babies might have the longest tails I've ever seen

I haven't seen an operculum, but i have seen an egg spot! Woohoo!
I wondered at first too, and the lady at the pet shop had no idea, but boy or girl i wanted her.


Mocha is guarding a bubblenest in the corner and if she goes near him she stands on her head. It was sad to see she has a couple of chunk missing from her fins, but such is the price of trying to get babies. Sid and Eunice had many spawns, embracing with eggs and all, but no babies. The last time I let them try, there was embracing but no eggs, and Eunice died soon after. I hope Cocoa and Mocha are successful in spite of what i may be doing wrong :D

I'll keep that in mind 'Mountaintrout'.

If I've figured it out this time, and they figure it out, I'll post photos and info here first :D
This is the second time they've been together. The first time she lost a chunk of tail and they just weren't interested. This time both seem much more willing.
