Sexing L046

Post by richardi »

Hi

I finally got hold of a group I L046’s….
Would you please help me sexing them?

I feel quite confident that the biggest one is a male. The little stub nose might also be male. However, I am feeling uncertain about the other three.

My LFS has got one L046 male that I consider to add to the group… I would really appreciate your thoughts of what ratio I have before adding another male.

Thanks!

Too young for me to give an opinion. But I'm far from being an expert

Hi

Thanks!

I should have mentioned that they are quite big. The biggest one must be about 8 cm (3 inches?).

Haha! Just my luck then.
I cross my fingers that one of them is a female in disguise ;) I guess time will tell. But I am not putting any money on buying another male 😂

Thanks
