Hello fish maniacs.

I have 3 Trichopodus leeri in my tank and are living peacefully and healty. I wanted to have 2 females and 1 male, i've got them very young and up to this day (6 months) they still look pretty much the same, by that i mean that no one has started developing male traits. I wonder if it's bad luck and i have 3 females or they still need some time.

I've done some research and i can't find someone who says approximatively when T. leeri starts to show sexual dimorphism. Can you help me?

Hi

Easy to answer in gerenal: it starts with half size - 6 cm - under condition, that it's a good strain/wild caught. Bred strains from Asia can be badly miss-shaped/show stunted growth.

How much time is needed to get that size depends on conditions they are brought up.

Why don't you show some pics?

Cheers Charles
