    I guess I'll bump this topic... Did you attempt it? The hybrid looks alright, and in the next week I'll be joining my convict and firemouth to see what happens.

    rhettd, looks like I'm trying the exact same thing as you
    Maybe your male fm isn't really a male?

    ahhh yes, i have considered him to be a female but most signs point to male so im keeping my hopes up, lol. i do however understand that in most cases FM can be impossible to sex unless they have been proven.

    Scope 'him' out and look as his vent size. If the vent looks wide it should be a female, but if it's smaller it should be a male.
    Compare the size to the anus.

    I just joined my two, and if nothing happens for a couple weeks, I'm going to replace my male convict for a female convict. My FM is chasing the convict with just little nudges... Cross your fingers

    Sorry for the double post, but my FM isn't nudging the convict anymore. My convict won't do anything back though he's just taking it... Kind of upsetting and it's making me mad.
    I'm getting a female asap tomorrow.

    my firemouth and convict have also bred male firemouth/ female convict. The fry were born between last night and this morning and are still really tiny, how long before i should start to pull the fry and place them in there own tank? Currently in the tank the fish have bred in i have the firemouth, the convict, a small rubberlip pleco, a jack dempsey, a blooc parrot and a bichir.
    I think Holden Caulfield was sane.
