    A user has posted a comment on the profile suggesting that males and females of the ornamental strains can’t be kept together. No experience with these personally so was wondering if anyone can confirm or deny?

    Sooner or later the male would bring the female to death. I tried once a well structured 240 lt tank for one pair of blue crowntail, some Poecilia as sparring partner included. All went well for half a year, spawning successful. Then there was not enough place for the female, the male put her down.

    In general: it doesn’t work in small tanks, in larger not in long terms. May be, there are more peaceful strains, but I really haven’t met one in fifty years.

    Keep them seperately; bring them together for spawning and seperate them again.

    It doesn’t work with 1/3-5 either.

    Interesting is, that trade tries to sell pairs. Cheep females going at a price as for males?

    Cheers Charles
