Can you get a better picture of the bottom fins? Otherwise it looks like a male. Males have pointy analfins while. females have round.

Yeah...he just curved up the analfin like I've seen my other confirmed males do. Ugh

Now I'm not sure what to do.

In my main I have 1f/2m. REALLY bad. Poor Luna is tortured. so I was getting 3 f to up the ratio to 4f/2m. Not great but better.

But with 3 and 3.... idk. If I bring him back...would they resell or kill. What a dilemma

Where did you buy him from? Petco and Petsmart resell returned fish after they quarantine, I can't speak to what local LFS do but I can't see why they'd kill him.

Could always just grab another female too. You want to look for a triangle shape connected to the body on the analfin. Anything that isn't a solid triangle would be a male. Let me know if you want some example pics and I'll take some for you.

PC...that would make me feel better. if they didn't I'd keep him anyways....even though I don't want him darn...that sounds bad.

Thanks. I THINK I know what I'm looking for since I have confirmed in my main (she's had fry ) maybe they're too young in the store to tell

The good news .... they will take Mickey back and let me wait a few weeks to get replacement. which is good cause I only have one q tank and I don't want to have to restart the clock on the others in there
