Their appearance is fooling me but I guess you're right. I forgot all about how they behaved.:) They look like females to me as I had one with completely yellow fins while the other female is orange-red like the ones Ttiger have. I had witnessed how they spawned. How easy do I get fooled by appearances. But in a way, their behavior pretty much says all.

Pls remind me to have my head examined. I should have guessed in the first place about their behavior rather than asking for their coloration.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

Thanks! They are really a fun fish to watch. I love how their color shifts as they swim into different areas of the tank.
