Apparently in alot of cases the female oce has a white streak along thier dorsal fin, and a shorter snout that the male who has a longer face and no white streak. Im sure not all are the same however. Im sure if u get two males youll find out immediatley worst case!
Well good thing is i can get brevis, just means id need to sort some bigger shells by the weekend! Dont think that u.s site does it that quick, or get the pair of ocies n keep the escargot shells iu have.
choices choices hehe. Asked spike who he'd rather share a tank with but he just looks at me rather blankly and then darts back into his cave!!!
See i was leaning towards the occies but seeing genrally they can be more agressive im maybe heading back towards brevis. Silly as it seems i have already become verrry attached to my julie n dont wanna risk him getting a bashing or being forced out his territory by nippy occies. I keep hearing brevis are much gentler and tolerant of tank mates. If this is true ill go brevis. Are they the gentler of the two or have i been misreading?
