Two female jewels?????

Post by Riaanjvr »

From what I`v seen of these two jewels I gather that they both are female. What I want to know is that is it normal for them to keep on laying eggs every few weeks even with no male in the tank?
I have a male in another tank but at the moment he is a bit to small to go into the same tank.

Hi riannjvr,

Yes that can happen, and it can be very frustrating if you are looking for fry!
