Ancistrus Claro LDA08 gender identification

Post by Ashley_1988 »

I have 3 Claro at the moment and I am 95% certain that I have 3 males, but due to the size and 'lack' of bristles in comparison to the other two makes me think (more hope) that this could be female.

Does it have too many bristles around its mouth and on the snout?

I'll do my best and try later during their water change.

Would the best way of doing it be to put them into a Tupperware tub with tank water?

Here is the best I could get. The one on the right in the first picture is the one who I think may be a female and the one on the bottom left in the second photo.

Hi, to me they all look to be males. One more dominant/older then the other two.
Every great achievement begins with a dream ;-)
