    thanks @MariaS defiantley the bluest female i have ever had or seen.
    think she may live out her life single, as males always seem to damage and kill the females

    360ltr is too small and dovii will out grow that in first year.
    will definetley try breed smaller pair i have left this soon. just hard to set up a 8 foot tank for 2 fish only. Females sadly get killed by males often so long term housing of pair is always a gamble

    have the same issues
    in truth i have a male umbee in a 1.8x.6x.6 tank and it is really starting to look small. what i assumed would be perfect for life he will outgrow in 2 years easily. so plan huge if i can give any advice.
