Ninja Woodcats

Post by fishguy1978 »

My lfs has ninjas available and Im headed back tomorrow to get some. I'm not sure if they are Centromochlus orca or Centromochlus musaicus. I didn't get any pictures to confirm the presence of a white spot just below the dorsal to correctly verify which. These are a little pricey to at $35ea.

$35 each? That's a relative bargain!

Good luck!

Spoke with the lfs and these don't have the white spot below the dorsal so, Centromochlus musaicus? The only trouble with that id is these are already close to 3in. 8-}

With tail, it's my understanding that both species reach about 3 inches.

I'm not that skilled at sexing wood cats yet. I need a better viewing container too.

I stopped into the lfs on the way home and picked up 6 more mini orcas too. I think there are several males.
