Unfortunately, when I zoom in on the photos, I can see only one fish clearly in any given photo. I can confirm that you have one male, but I can't tell if you have two, or three.

I've got two males myself, but no females. :-(

Cheers,
Eric

Hey, The first photo looks like a male to me, the second is in the wrong position to sex, but, the rest all a bit harder, they appear to just be old enough the rest in the photos look male but this is not for sure.
Personally I have 4 females and 2 male gyrina. These are fun, they don't know when to stop eating and their belly can become larger than their length.
Sorry I couldn't help further.

Thanks, I will work on trying for some better picks. Once I placed a light over them they wouldn't sit still.

Confirmed I have 3 males and a female. I caught all four and by comparing the known male to the other 3 made that I'd. Wouldn't cooperate with the camera guy though.

Hi,

Mine are quite different, which I think means that they are adult colouration, is that correct?

They are more orange than you see in the picture and I think are 2 male and 3 female.

Fishguy1978's are like mine at the sub-adult stage, characinkid yours are adults. This variation is normal in age, and collection location. As the ones from Suriname vs. Peru tend to look a little different. Someone will have to look into these differences more in the future. I have slowly started researching, but this is a species that we don't have much data on. I have even seen some that are a bright pastel yellow color, my male is starting to change like this too. There is just so much variation, it is truly a unique species. (or group of similar species)

I'm not sure about the juvie/adult differences in coloration. I have only had mine for a few months and only see them at feeding time.

Any thoughts on breeding these? Is it the same as other Tatia such as T intermedia?

Yes, that is the plan. I would like to add more females. I passed on 3 this last week because they were all males. I believe the spawning habits are similar. I have a trio of T. intermedia (1F/2M) that will hopefully spawn.
