Wondering IF a female sword has been hit by one male #1 and she is hit for ,,,say.. 5 drops and along comes a new male #2 and hits her again during that time. Will she carry the 5 drops before she can be hit again by the new introduced male #2 ? Does the new males hit fall inbetween the 5 hits or AFTER ? Confused? LOL Hope not......I'm asking this due to the fact that if I want a new trait to be entered as soon as possible, do I have to wait till the female is UNGRAVED ( My own word )......Thanks for putting up with my unprofessional terms...Curious here....Richard

The females carry the extra sperm packets until they need them after they drop the next batch of fry. So the current male also has the chance to overwhelm her with new packets of his sperm and dilute out the old packets left by the old male. I've usually seen the new males fry in the 2nd batch of fry after he's added. It's not unusual to see some fry from the old male in that 2nd batch mixed with the new males fry but after that only fry from the new male. Steve

I'm almost 100% sure I've seen this issue on Jerry Springer. 99.9% YOU are the father!

I would say even if it takes awhile, getting the new male in there as soon as possible is sure to make it happen sooner. :-D

Thanks Freshwater & Lofty. Looks like there is a common idea here that introducing a new male ASAP is right. A roll of the dice so to speak. As for you Lofty. You look just like my Mother. You sure we aren't brother and sister? HUM ???? ( Good looking sister to say the least )..........Richard

Yeah, but Jerry paid a prostitute with a check once while on the city council in Cincinnati, so he's not exactly the sharpest knife in the drawer either.
