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.

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