    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

     This one could become a male
