I had obtained some eggs from Joe Bulterman of Ogoense pyrophore kimono
yellow. Joe told me to guard any females with my life because the ratio was
way in favor of males.
I have raised up six fish to over an inch in a ten gallon with some other
killies and some barbs. One fish had a little different body shape, a
little heavier too. Ah ha, the female! The males were not anything great
to look at, so I have not bothered to try to separate to breed. Two weeks
ago I attended the meeting at Dave Korans house and was obviously in killie
overlaod shock due to the huge numbers of fish at the auction. Did not
really get to view all of the fish at the auction before they were sold.
After everything was done, I saw a bag of a reverse trio of kimonos.
What a fish! Hey Joe, I do have a bad sex ratio. All six of my fish are
FEMALES!!!! The story should have a happy ending because the guy who bought
the reverse trio lives relatively close and is willing to part with one male
for two females. I wonder what the difference is between Joe's conditions
and mine to reverse the sex ratio problem?
