Metriaclima estherae Minos Reef

 Males are all light blue, females are either "O" (orange) or "OB" (orange blotch). The O female's fry are sexed right out of the mouth, males are dark blue and females are orange in color. It takes longer to sex the OB's offspring, but all the males will end up blue and all the females OB. In the lake and in captivity, the same blue male will freely breed with both O and OB females.
