    Males have a right angle in the tip of the dorsal fin. Females do not have the right angle. Their dorsal will come straight back, more like one side of a triangle.

    I have just got a red tail. I asked the bloke for two but he gave me one rainbow shark as well have heard it could be a problem having a rainbow in with the red tail and also blacksharks which i have aswell.
    Any advice?
