The breeding males(I've got a reverse trio) switched places today. I couldn't resist letting them have at it for a while...


The challenger. 1st shot off the camera boy I was surprised.




Home court advantage for this guy? For those who've watched these and other killies he is currently doing that shimmying move which seems to demonstrate the fish's strength.






So far everyone is playing by the rules which makes for lots of nice photos...






Then frustration sets in...despite being rather uneven neither fish is willing to back down. It doesn't help that the female has come along over to see what the commotion is all about. Seeing the photo oppurtunities are drawing to a close I get the net ready to remove the smaller guy so the bigger one can has his turn in the breeding tank...


OK guys get over it!


I think the order of operations in a male Fp. gardneri mind goes like this.

1. Females 2. eliminating other males 3. food

They've got their priorities straight!

Very impressive noname! Gotta love males of any species who are so high on testosterone they can't even take notice of a predator coming or a huge monster with a flash & camera Laughing

Thanks guys! In life when they were just swimming around they are attractive fish...during these photo shoots I almost felt bad looking through the viewing lens instead of watching them! The big male in these photos in particular darkened down to what looked almost purple. Gotta find a way to keep the flash from stealing away those colors. I was surprised at that mouth open shot. By then the fish had started taking shots at each other so I just aimed the camera at the flurry and that came out. LOL Marcos! They were pretty cooperative little photo subjects cosidering all thats for sure.

Needless to say I'm very excited in that I've harvested around 40 eggs from these guys.
