Merging tanks - Page 4 - Aquarium Forum
Freshwater Aquarium Photography This is the photography forum for the FW section. It's a dedicated forum to post pictures of some of the things in our tanks, pics of new additions, as well as for great information exchange, tips, tricks, and overall just discussing cameras and photography techniques of our tanks. Learn all about apertures, f-stops, ISOs, macro, flashes, white balance, and anything and everything else that drives us crazy to get a masterpiece shot. Feel free to show off your tanks in here, and plus its a great way for humble people to nonchalantly have their tanks nominated by the other members for Tank Of The Month. Don't be shy!

Re: Merging tanks

The larger white one with striations is male. Solid yellow is female.

Really It about the same with macs. Someone told me they needed 75 gallons to a pair, heavily planted and with RODI water to thrive, plus daily water changes. I have proved they do not.
That sounds just right to not require obsessive water changes.
HAHAHAHAHAH 75 gallons heavily planted with RODI water and daily water changes just for 2 little fish. I would say more like 10 gallons or 20 gallons for a pair of bettas. Since bettas are your area of expertise, what size tank would you say a pair of them needs?

I'm thinking I may pull the guppies and put them in the 3.5ft, some of the males are gorgeous and would like to give breeding them a go

Having been told that they have lived for months together happily it make is easy for me to notice the obvious. The dorsal is longer and more pointy on the striated one and more rounded on the solid.

Granted, you never know until you see them spawn, but if they were 2 males they wouldn't have been living happily together. To my eye they appear to be male and female. If they spawn in your tank you can tell me if I'm right or wrong. They could be two female but I'd give big odds against it.

Re: Merging tanks

As I said I don't really care, they are for display not breeding...I didn't ask what sex they were, I was proudly showing my new fish. *sigh*

They maybe male/male, they maybe male/female....and they maybe female/female. Again just by looking at them you cannot 100% with certainty tell what they are.

Whatever comes I am by far not a newbie fishkeeper. Just because I stated I had not kept them before does not mean I know nothing about them, I have researched for a long time and I have spoken to many local discusautolinker.com autolinking image breeders and keepers....Please do not think I am jumping into this blindly. I have it under control lol.

Just enjoy the photos and, again, leave it at that!

Macs are not as small as you think. However a pair who have become bonded can easily live in a 10 gallon and spawn happily. Then others would require larger just for more room to get away. It all depends on the fish in question.

Re: Merging tanks

Six to eight inches TL. The Brunei strain get larger than Marudi, who usually get to about 4 to 5. Mine are Marudi, though I have had the giant ones too. They are huge.
