A keeper on MFK sexed 'em for me and the lighter one is a female and darker is a male. So excited for the possibility of more :YMPARTY:

Yes, I think the sexing is correct. Good luck!

Great looking fish. I have had about 6 batches of lots of eggs from mine in the last 12 months and they are really fun. I have sold a bunch locally and have around 30 fry at the moment in a 20G long and feeding time is truly a frenzy. Good luck with them.

Thanks, how do you induce spawning? I've only seen one suggestion for doing multiple water changes leading up to a spawn event.

I feed heavily with frozen Blood worms, NLS cichlid pellets, Freeze dried tubiflex worms etc, and you will see the females fill with eggs. I also observe more chasing between my group and then start with water changes. I change about 20-25% per day for about 1 week and then spawning usually occurs. Eggs are laid in a cluster (like frogs eggs), which I then separate. They hatch in about 3-5 days and are perfect miniatures of the parents. Let me know if I can be of any more help!

Thanks. I have a cold water drip going into their tank currently. I feed frozen brine once a week. Otherwise, they get Ken's 0.5mm green fry pellets or Ken's 1-2mm cichlid pellets.

I didn't see the woodcats come out to eat but I picked up some live black worms and dropped a healthy serving in the tank.

Honestly that is quite surprising, all of the woodcats that I have kept, T. strigata, T. reticulata, D. perugie, D. altae T. gyrina T. simplex A. batrachus and even T. intermedia etc. have all been female heavy. Especially intermedia which out of all six of mine there is only 1 male which was very hard to get. I will let you know when my fry become availible.

Thank you. When I pick these up I purchased the last ones in stock. I didn't know how to sex them at the time so I hadn't looked for more.
I do have 9 mini orcas that are a mixed group. Am thinking of splitting them up into two groups.

I have some 6 month old fry that are around/over 3 inches long if you are interested? PM me and lets see if we can work something out?

During feeding I noticed one of the male T. Intermedia had tuned solid brown hiding the patterning on his sides. I caught all 3 to see if he would stay solid or revert. Also gave me a chance to sex them, 2m/1f.

Neat. Yeah, they will get darker and lighter with mood, water conditions, and tank decor (and age too, I have seen for other species).
