    Hi ,
    I managed to rescue three fry from the main tank after my kribs spawned early in the new year (They seem to have developed a taste for the eggs and young as I haven’t seen any since) For the past 4 months they have been on a 20L tank with an air powered box filter and 25% water changes twice a week. I have been feeding them on crushed flake and small mosquito larvae. They are about 2 cm (0.75inches in old money) long but I still can’t tell the sex. Is this a reasonable size for 4 months and how long before they are sexable?

    Cheers

    In about another month you should be able to sex them.
