    i can tell for the most part male from female by looking at there fins. the mans most likely will taller dorsal and bottom fins. their ventral fins are usually 2-3 times long also. but the 100% sure way to tell is during their spawning. the male will have a much smaller and thinner (almost like a pencil point) tube while the female has a much thicker and larger tube. the tube is located between the ventral and bottom fin.

    I heard when males are large, they will get a horn thing on their forehead
