55 Gallon Tank Anyone want to take a stab at sexing my pearls?

sillylittlefishey

Anybody want to take a stab at sexing these kids? 1 & 3 are about 2 inches, #2 is probably half that size ... I'm unsure if any of them are old enough to tell ...I'm not expecting #2 to be old enough.

We had a 4th that went missing 3 weeks ago. We bought another one that's in my QT tank right now that's probably a male (last pic)... that's not the QT tank he's in in the pic though.

I'm wondering if I have a boy problem now ...

The 3 are in my main tank, a 55 us gallon tank with some von rio tetras, cories, and a clown pleco.

Thanks for any help!

I’d say the first 3 are females, but I’m not so sure ‘bout the last. I’m leaning toward male, but the fins say otherwise. Maybe you could try to get a better picture of the one in QT? The lighting in QT is making it hard for me to tell.

EDIT: It might just be that they’re too young to tell.

I too want to sex my pearls… but they were too young when posted, for anyone to tell. Not 100% sure, because I’m sure there are experts who could tell, but I think you may have to wait for yours to get a lil bigger to determine definitively. The males will have longer fins than females.

These are too young to say for certain though the last picture looks like a young male.

Thanks everyone! How big do they need to be to confidently determine gender? They're always so young at the store, I'm just hoping I'm not getting all boys... I don't want them fighting.

Thanks!
