Yeah I was thinking more about the 'dead zones' that the guys talk about during their MACNA talks, so I was thinking more indirect cyanide poisoning. That said, I hadn't even thought about it as a sand burying wrasse either.Usually sand bury wrasses aren't captured with cyanide, even in regions where it is used.
I haven't had china wrasses transition, but I have had other Anampses species do so. The ones I had started small, 2" or less, and in about 2yrs when they were about 4" would begin. The transition was mostly done in 2 weeks from when it started.Anybody have this wrasse change from female to male in captivity? I have a pair of female/juvenile and would really love to have this happen in my tank. At about what size does this happen? My pair currently in a 320 gal tank with about 20 wrasses total with other fishes of course, but mostly wrasses. Bott are doing very well, fat and are growing, about 2.75-3 inches and 2.5-2.75 inches.
You got her for the last 8 months. Great. How big is she and is she changing to male yet?The new one is still doing great! Eats everything but especially loves live blackworms. No noticeable color changes or transformations so far. My male Nahackyi rules the tank and likes to chase this one around every now and then.
