I am pretty sure that I have two of each, I think I just about drove the girl at the fish store crazy by being so particular about the patterns on the fish. The problem was that I sexed most of the fish as female, and just took whatever male fish she could catch. Usually I focus on the health of the fish, but in this case, since I was not planning on keeping all of them I thought I would just let Darwin sort them out.

The best looking female is now in quarantine, however much I dislike this, it actually seems to make selection easier. One of the males is obviously not going to win the contest, and one of the other two seems to be more tolerated by the female. I will hopefully be able to choose within the next week or so. Here is their new temp housing.

I think I may finally have a pair. The male is one of the original fish, but the female is new.

Thats great Rob, real good looking fish. Still hunting for a Carpintis, but if I cant get one I think I will go with a Sal female. And you have both.... hmph!


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!

Lol! You get the deal on tanks, and I get the deal on fish. If all goes well, maybe i could ship them to you. You keep what you want, sell the rest and we split the 2 dollars left over.

@ ehh,

Thanks. I have a single male in another thank, and there are two more females in this tank, maybe one more pair.
