possible breeding?

Post by tgditz » Thu Oct 11, 2012 9:20 am

Hi Pam, I have a 20g tank with a yellow male and another I believe to be a female, but have not been able to identify her, she has not eaten for 4 days, seems ok, doesn't look or act sick, the yellow has been merciless in chasing her, how can I identify her and know if she could be breeding?

Have a look at the chin area on the suspected female. Does it appear more rounded? Does the fish make chewing motions? If so, you most likely have a female holding. If not, then the other fish is harassing it too much. Are they the only fish in the 20?
