Keyholes pairing #1
Hi, I’m looking to get two keyholes, a male and a female. Is it an issue to get two from the same shop same size ie if they are siblings and have fry? Or is this only an issue with prolific fish like guppys and platys?

Thanks

Re: Keyholes pairing #2
I'd follow the advice in the link I gave you previously https://www.seriouslyfish.com/species/cleithracara-maronii/, Reproduction, 2nd paragraph - sometimes a shop will allow you to take away several fish, then return the fish that don't form part of a pair once the pair has formed (and before any harm comes to them by their conspecifics).

Re: Keyholes pairing #3
Thanks, but my question is about the sibling thing, will it cause issues for fry if they are brother and sister? Will the fry be unhealthy? Or have problems?

Thanks
