Info?... you won't find that here! Ha... NOT.
Lots and lots of things to learn in here. We're glad you joined us!! Welcome!
Looks amazing! I finally saw your list. Try to get your Boesemani numbers up if you can. They are social and like a group of about 6-7. The females are very differently colored than the males. I've had my group for 3 years now.

No... they are very different. The males, my two, are half grey and one is half yellow, the other one is half orange. So the males are fully 2 colour. The females are blue/grey/green/yellow ISH with 2-3 vertical grey/black stripes up their middle.
Here is a video I found if I can get it to work. This IS a female. Hope it works and you can see what I mean.

Is your male like her's is at the 15 second mark?? See the distinct 2 colours. I have one like that and one that is much paler or yellow.
