Re: Temp vs. sex ratio

Thanks Vinny,
I'm pleased to hear that my juveniles won't be sexable for a while yet, I
was getting a bit concerned I may have all males.
I'll alter the temperature in the main tank for the next spawning (wishful
thinking.)  How much easier it will be to alter the temperature than
fiddling about with the pH, I hate doing that.  A very interesting exercise
ahead of me in the following months.
