So, whats your verdict? Are they two males... the fighting would seem it to me? Annoying if so.

Both of the "shuddered" during the introduction at one point. The definite male did some really nice clear ones on/off for about 10 minutes, only, the camera wasn't filming!!

that didn't look too promising... I would say from that you had your original one wrongly sexed.

My male did the sex sting to the females side membrane and also snipped off the end of her telson... nice of him.

but i saw this behaviour when i had mine in a communal tank, he went straight for the other male whenever he found him. this was before I found out that keeping them together wasn't such a good idea... about the time i joined on here lol

And on top of that I never witnessed a female juddering. I'm not saying that they dont but I never saw mine two girlies doing it.

looked more like a "get the **** out of my territory" thing. but, I wonder because they were both dumped in the same tank at the same time, they were probably a bit weirded out. I think it would be best to wait till the "female" got used to a tank, then introduce the male.

I agree with this, especially once you get a confirmed female. Gives her a chance to lay down some pheromones for the male to notice. Very Happy Sometimes when you introduce a male to a female's tank, you can see him scanning the ground with his pectines very thoroughly.

I must admit I suggested the homeymoon suite because i have found it to be more successful than just putting the male in the females box.

but putting the male in the females enclosure is another option. see what happens. if you get the same i still think you have two lads.

Ah ok, yeh. Well, there was more shuddering coming from the new male last night. Shall I wait a while and try letting him into her enclosure maybe?

You could always give it a shot, but if it looks more like fighting than mating, I'd separate 'em fast. Those pinchers could do a number!

Just watch for hand-holding, and possibly a sexual sting.

Ok, yeh, I managed to seperate them pretty fast last time I think, and twasn't too hard.

Shall I try again in a week or so then?

Yeah, I'd give it a go, just to confirm . . . but if it doesn't go well, you should be on the lookout for a girl. Smile

yeah i'd give it another go, and as has been said, you could be on the look out for a female if it doesn't go to well!
