Australe colour change?

Recommended Posts

Recently, I noticed that my A. australe female, was getting colouration similar to the male on her fins. Anyone have any idea what is causing this?

Also yes she is extremely fat. I actually hardly feed them, but this pair just seem to get fat on air. My poliaki female is nowhere near as big as those two and I've had her a lot longer.

Also sorry for the horrid photo. The male always chases her off so I had to get what I could.

Sometimes females can display secondary male characteristics. Have you been spraying their water with testosterone? lol

*lol* No. My poliaki female still looks like a female of that species should, and this female's daughters still all look like standard australe females.

Maybe she's just letting herself go now the kids are grown.
