No, the Gender here is very strong, ie the males resemble the females very strong.

At an out venture was not to think of lemons and so was left gliding doctor to his fate. Seven days he ate nothing, but often swam out of his hiding place and most other attacks . With the Nahrungsaufname he then started from the wound to defecate out the 3 months needed to become overgrown again . This fish is still alive .

In another experience ever , the float switch failed in my Hälterungsanlage and it constantly strömmte fresh water in the aquarium to salt water sometime freshwater was . He swam after two days already in pure fresh water at a temperature of about 15 ° C. When I noticed it , of course, we sat around immediately and the Hawai doctor has this survived without major injury.

Even today, this animal is still alive and is intended to show how robust can be such animals .
