Late Maturing Male?
I went and bought a breeding trio of silver mollies the other day, but now I'm thinking I got two males instead.
The definate male has a slightly larger dorsal fin then the definate female, and has a long and very obvious godonopium (sp?). The fish in question is a little over 1 1/4 inches long with a clamped anal fin which it can move from side to side, but is not firmly attatched to the body like the female's fin. The fish did flare it once and it looked like a female's fin, but it carries it clamped. The fish's dorsal fin has been clamped too, so I haven't been able to get a good look at it.
How old (or long) are these late maturing males before they get a definate male anal fin?
Has anyone ever owned a late maturing male?
