Pundamilia nyerei question

Postby connemara_man » Sat Sep 11, 2010 7:02 pm

I have around 9 of these beautiful fish, purchasing from fry. They are colouring up nicely now and obviously I need to keep males apart. My pundamilia nyerei are easily identifiable now apart from one?

I know that males are generally black below with other colours especially red which are easily identifiable, so this is not a problem.

One pundamilia nyerei I am not so sure as to whether it is male or female as it is coloured very differently from the rest (both male & females in the tanks) - though still young it is strikingly coloured banana yellow from the dorsal fin and much of the body. I have females with shades of yellow, but not a patch on this fish.

The fish is particularly aggressive so I assume it is male.

Maybe the colouring is not so unusual for a male. If you can shed any light on this I would really appreciate it.

No worries, we've kept the Makobe, Senga, Python Island and Ruti Island varients and had all of them breed to various success, the Ruti were the least successful but the most colourful and diverse fry, with colouring similar to your above description, so sounds like a male with a slightly different colour pattern to the rest which we had in amongst ours too. :handgestures-thumbup:

Tonys senga is a Pundamilia pundamilia aka the old "zebra nyererei" but not a true nyererei.

There is a nyererei in captivity from senga point but few and far between.
