    Would someone be so kind as to explain how to sex a regalis by it's color scheme? Mine has tripled in size over two months and is very distinct. Gorgeous. Thanks for your time.

    I read a thread somewhere and all I could figure out was the black inside the white on the abdomin fades out in females but stays in males... but please someone explain it again because I didn't get it... thanks

    There is that little 'chain of diamonds' or 'lightning bolt' pattern on the dorsal surface of their abdomen. In females, it fades to a white/grey but males have the black inside of light color.

    ok at what size should the black be noticably fading away, I have a 2 inch regalis who has a lighter black color than my ornata, but I haven't had it molt yet either, is it really noticable and at what size should it be mostly white in a female?
