Re: Rivulus Hartii
Congratulations on your hartii babies. I think that you will find them fast
growing (and unpicky eaters). Sometimes "benign neglect" (and I'm a past
master at it) works well (grin).
I find hartii to be easy to sex. Females have a "rivulus spot" (dark spot at
the base of the tail) and males don't. The males of the strain I have (R.
hartii Point Redux) are also brighter and have a dark rim to their tail,
with a sulfur yellow top and bottom band.
Keep us posted on how they do.
