Guys, just a quick question. I understand there are T species where the males look differently than the females.

Is P. Pulcher one of them?

most psalms (as far as i know) display some pretty good sexual dimorphism. the difference is crazy in irminia and cambridgei...

They only look dif. once the males mature. Can't find my pics of my P pulcher, however the male looks alot like this one post MM molt,P irminia Female, MM (totally dif. coloration).

Found it.

Female


Mature male


IME P irminia, P cambridgei, and P pulcher mature males look very similar, with the gals looking nothing like the male.

This male was being picked up for a mating attempt, however the lil guy never produced a sac.

Glad to help.
