Re: Fp. gardneri -- sexually mature at what age?
Fundulopanchax are often called semi-annuals, as they lived in the more open
savanna where their water holes may dry out, just like Nothos. As a result,
rapid maturity has survival value. Yours are probably mature enough to
provide viable eggs now.
Don't be discouraged if the fertility is a little low right at first, but
that isn't usually a big problem with GAR.

"DEMOCRACY" is two wolves and a lamb voting on lunch.
"LIBERTY" is a well-armed lamb denying enforcement of the vote.
