    image.image. I thought he was male but she could be female. We only have one so there isn’t anyone to compare her/him too. Any help would be nice. I know they don’t commonly breed in captivity, or at least that what I’ve read in many articles, but I want to prevent the breeding part of things.

    How old are they when they are no longer juveniles? He’s maybe 5 inches. Definitely more than four.

    It’s a common. They dig a 3 ft tunnel into the river bank to breed, so they can’t breed in aquaria,

    Yes. He is a common. That’s good to know. So I won’t have to worry about that aspect. But would you happen to know what his gender is?
