the store I go to has many females labeled as male, I think because they have rich color! You can clearly tell they’re not male, and I even bred this one with a male that has the same colors.
I think I may buy more because these females are simply stunning!

Very beautiful!
She thanks you lol
To be honest my options in stores are slim, I’ve never seen a female this colorful in person. She’s the only female like that I have

Your timing must have been very lucky to get her then.

It was for sure! It’s actually hard to find females here, most stores don’t even sell them around here. Petsmart always has them, and that’s honestly my best option because my local store that’s family owned doesn’t sell females, and the store I got this girl from, always has sick fish. I have to treat them for ich. I mean I always treat my fish, but these always have visible ich. So I get my males from Petsmart because they get koI and mustard and stuff, and then I get my females from this other store. I’ve always cured them of ich, never had a fail with them yet (fingers crossed).

Wow. That stuff is always so incredible to me.
I wanted to get a better video. But this particular male is touchy. Great daddy first spawn, they hatched and it’s day 8 they’re still alive.
I have my tank setup like this here picture... and when I came home from class they were mating (in the dark) and any sign of light he would attack the female and charge towards me. So I couldn’t really get a good video because he was touchy about it.
