1,2,6 and 8

Post by darry »

My guess is 1, 2, 6 and 8 are female. And 1 being a gravid female.

However, if 8 is NOT a female, then it will be better. But if 8 is also a female, then you may have problem breeding this group.

Why so? The biggest male I see so far is 7 (at 7.8cm). This male will have difficulties to trap number 1 and 8, which is bigger size than him.

My breeding group is bigger male and smaller female. If there is a successful story on bigger female and smaller male, then there is really nothing to worry.

Meanwhile, with the gravid female in sight, you should do some spawn triggers to get them in the mood for love.

Thanks for your reply darry (and twinspots_goby :wink: ). I see now that I have made a stupid mistake with placing the length by the fish :shock: . I have correct it now in the original post.
As you can see know the biggest Zebra is number 4 and that is definately a male.
