The bows in the sump are both males and females - note that I said that I have
a good sponge on the return water so no eggs from the sump can slide back into

survive. Even if they did decide to let them live I'm sure the jaguar cats
that prowl at night would probably finish them off :-) Such a beautiful fish
that never comes out.
