I'd be interested in some different locations. That one is pretty ugly :lol:

The one I had didnt have much blue either so I wonder if the pics you usually see on the net are mainly based upon camera flash?

I've seen some around Houston that were a real nice blue.

There are some that are very nice that I saw in person.

They are quarantined in a 400l

Wow... the one male is pretty blue and nice..... :thumbsup: .
Did you vent to make sure.... as the coloration of the other three seem to be more female in a sense......

How has there aggression behavior been???

Love them mouths..... brings a whole new meaning to fat lips.. eh?

We consider two males and two females, but saw the color and after checking in the back I am not sure but they are still young even though they already measuring for the largest 26 cm. Regarding the behavior for the time they are quiet to behold.

You should be able to vent them easily enough.... That would be a treat if you did indeed get a male and three females... :thumbsup:

10-10-2009, 06:29 PM
Yes but there is always the fear of losing the male and it is subsequently difficult to get another.

True and yet you will be doing okay.. .especially if they are indeed three females... how big of a tank do you have them in again??? Just be very carefully watching them and do not go on vacation......

I think you will be just fine... and look at it this way.... If are able to get another trio of two females and one male... they you will have a lot of females for the two males and aggression should be easier to manage..
