    I bought this JD from pet supplies plus 3 monthes ago and I still dont know for sure if it' s a male or female.He/she is about 5 inches long and I think it might be a male but I don't know for sure. ( I tell everyone it is a male)..

    I would have to say its a female, its head doesn't seem big and broad enough to be a male and also the fins aren't aslong as what i've seen with other males, nice fish! :)

    I don't know anything about sexing JDs, but I think they're SO pretty, so I just came to check out your pictures. ;D He or she is definitely a beauty! Thanks for the pics (and sorry I don't have an answer).

    My guess would be a male. Females have more blue dots on their face and less blue dots on their bodies.

    Male. Very unusual coloring. Looks a little gold to me. Would like to see some more photos in a few months as he grows.
