  • Egg sex development

    I've read that water temperature has a relationship with causing eggs to be a particular sex. Warmer waters causes more females compared to males or vice versa. Forget what the temperature should be.

    Has anyone ever tried this before? Trying to get more females compared to males or vice versa.

    Not sure this is true of every egglayer. Kribs are the one I've heard are affected by temps. Angels, not so much.

      Is there a list somewhere about the known fish for this and what the results are? Just curious.

        For most animals, higher temps result in more females, and lower result in more makes. This is relative for each different species though. Random tip of the day: if you want a boy, dad shouldn't wear undies (opposite if you're trying for a girl, obviously)

                    I was thinking of doing this experiment with my Angels and Rams....you think if I set the temp at 82 degrees that I would get mostly females?

                      no idea but you would have to do it twice with measurable returnable results to call it anywhere close to fact.

                        I think you'd have to go a bit higher than that. Just by a couple degrees. Just a guess though. I'd start low, and then work your way up with each spawn. That would be a fun experiment!
