High guys , I finally got some decent pix of the pepps(sort of)
Could some one have a punt on sexing this fish- it is the biggest and nicest one I have and looks kinda
like a female but the bloody thing has male behaviour patterns eg. stalking all the best caves and
chasing other would be males



And this is him/her hanging out with cave buddy the yoyo loach

Cheers J

Cheers guys , I thought pepps were the same as a L182 anyway, and the L183 is the version that keeps
the white seem on the dorsal and tail- so they r the same as big fred Curby ( I think)

High guys , up for another for another round of sexing pepps?
I cleaned the tank and decided I'll heave the fish out and get some shots from above.
These guys/( and hopefully more)girls are getting close to 12 months old (and the ruler
will size them)
I'm hoping that there is 1m:5f, allthough two may go either way.
What do you guys say



This is the one I'd go male and the 2 together under the biggest one could be either M/F

this one could be either M/F

Here's hoping .
Cheers J

They are great pics mate but it would be hard to sex without seeing a few side
shots of there snouts..try and take a few from the side on...i no it would be hard but it would give us a good idea... Smile

Thanx guys , I will have another crack at showing some more pix in maybe 12 months time.
As long as there is possible females and not all males thats a good enough starting point.

Ha HA some more pepp pix , sort of ok - I really like the way the biggest female always looks like she has
diamonds in her eye's for the fotos+ a smaller female in the foto - I think

This is probably the same fish , but another female I think


note the male on the filter sponge- definite male.
I don't think this is the same fish but he's a male.



So now the odds are 2Males:4Females.
