I have two C. weeksii that I have to keep separate due to one bullying the other. I cannot tell which sex these two are. Can someone offer insight into how to sex weeksii C. And should I continue to keep them separate or put them together and let them work out their differnce on their own?

Hello Ed,

this what David Armitage (GB) answered to your question:

1. Are you sure they are weeksi ? They are not normally very aggresive. If there is no black border to the anal and dorsal and they look a bit thin and mean they could be maculatum which can be very aggressive and grows much larger.

2.But if they are oxyrhynchum/weeksi- the spines behind the males eye are usually quite easy to see and females are often bigger and fatter. I have kept 2 same sex couples together in quite small spaces without a fatality.

Does this help you?

regards,
Auke
