A. bitaeniata " shishita "

Got what is hopefully a pair of these guys, all of the fish were very small making sexing very difficult but these 2 were constantly together and the smaller one is a bit yellow and deeper bodied than the larger one so I guess only time will tell.

Oh and sorry for the algae on the glass if it makes it tough to see clearly, I encourage it's growth in all of my grow out and breeding tanks

The larger one is just over an inch, it was the biggest and most dominant in the tank and the small one is just about 3/4 of an inch, I haven't had bitaeniata in my tanks for years and a certain friend of mine is not so good at sharing so I have my fingers crossed

She looks close to spawn ready, but if they do spawn I won't expect much from it if anything, because it will be her first and she still isn't even an inch long

She can spawn and I think they may have already, I haven't seen her in a day and a half so she may be gaurding somewhere. I just don't expect much to be produced by such a young fish and I'm betting the survival rate will be even lower.
