Agreed, definitely looks like a male. The females breeding tube is much wider and flat on the end rather than pointed like that.

Ok that's what I thought too. I've just never seen his breeding tube quite so large. I can actually see it from 8 feet away and he "paired" off with the other adult male in the tank and is attacking what I suspect is the male juvie in the tank. There are no females of breeding age in this tank just 4 juvies and the 2 male adults.

Are you sure the other is male?

Yes. His breeding tube and body all day he's a male. I also saw him fertilize eggs laid by my one and only breeding female while they were in the same tank for a short spell.

I've included a picture above but its not very good.
