I thought both of my azureus were female, but found some bad eggs in their QT last week. I haven't seen any courting or calling whatsoever, and they act really indifferent towards each other when I'm watching. I've heard of female pumilio dropping eggs without a male, is this possible with tincs or is it more likely that I have a pair?

Ive had Tincts lay eggs and gel mass without having a male in the tank.

You could have a male though. In my experience males toe pads are nearly always larger than females.

Yeah, I'm pretty familiar with sexing tincs, one is definitely female, the other is a tough call.. medium-sized toepads but I was leaning towards female due to body shape/posture. I've also usually seen *some* sort of courting/calling with other pairs, but these two don't pay any attention to each other at all from what I've seen.

The male is 1yr+ and the female over 2 years.

.......but problem solved, found 5 good eggs and a few bad while checking the huts tonight :)
