Thread: Genders?

  1. #1

    Default Genders?

    0 Not allowed!
    Hello again you lot! I finally got a few good pictures of my 4 bronze corys from the top without anybody moving too much and I was wondering if I could get some help on the genders? Reason I'm asking is, after their done and I'm sure they're healthy I was gonna put them in a 40 gallon tank and go get 2 more (don't wanna overload the tank all at once) and I was wondering what genders I should ask for at the shop. I'm not LOOKING to breed, so if I've got all of one gender or another that's fine by me, but if it's unbalanced in a way that might stress them assuming they try to breed I'd like to do what I can to fix that. There's 3 albino's, 1 regular, and I'm going to be getting 2 more regularly coloured corys after these guys are healthy. I THINK I have 1 female and 3 males, but I'm not sure. They are juveniles so... I don't know if that makes it easier or harder to sex them.

    Here's the pictures, sorry about quality, I only have my phone and well...

    Can't really tell from these pictures and they seem a little young to tell. I've never known cories to be stressed or bothered by female-male ratios. In general, as they mature the females will be a bit broader in the body than the males.

    OK, thanks. I just didn't want them to stress if something triggered them to breed (like being in a tank full of guppies and mollies and platties and tetras which will probably mostly be going at it like... well... like guppies.)

    Pics are 320x180 and quite a distance from the fish. Doesn't make it easy.

    If you don't want to stress cories then give them sand, few plants, hiding place or two and a decent group size.

    I have smooth gravel, quite a few plants, and A LOT of hiding places (2 pieces of hollow driftwood, a cave, and a hollow "bubbler" dragon that doesn't really bubble)
