Taeniolethrinops furcicauda

Post by BreeL » Sun Oct 15, 2017 10:41 am

I have a group of Taeniolethrinops furcicauda.
One of the females does not have the beautiful yellow underneath as the other females do. I am wondering if this is a normal variation with the females of this species?

Hi Breet,

There is always variation within the population. And often mood/well being/health will dictate the color as well. But if you want to breed the best to the best, to have the highest quality possible, after you exhaust all possibilities of health, you may want to cut it from your breeding group. Its 50% of the genes.
