Not to sure what you consider a not so hard driver, cause the male you sent gives my female one heck of a time. She almost looks pissed as he runs circles around her and moves forward and back. They are both very persistent-I have only seen one "hit". Some of the males seem to be going out earlier than others. One of them is quite small and already has a bit of sword. I just hope the(now 3) "females" are what I think they are!
I hope to get brineshrimp eggs and all while I get some more supplies...laterite or Ecocomplete and some cool "must haves" we all can't resist.
Do F. fallax prefer acidic water? I've heard of using coconut fiber for spawning media, but that doesn't acidify the water according to one guy(Clint www.petfish.net)
The hybrid montys sound awesome. If I end up with a few extra males, I may do some experimenting myself. I have seen a few HUGE swordtails at the petstores lately. Makes me pretty suspicious...especially when you are looking at a swordtail bigger than the male ivory you sent! Of course, those puny, crooked swords arent half as good as the one this guy has right now.
I've been waiting on those worms! Tell me when you get them out...Thanks!
