    My 2 are around 5 yrs old. They’ve been fine. Just added the dwarf blue rainbows last year. They all do school together. But all my fish tend to school together at times. 7AD98A5E-ED51-45ED-95F7-43090847C2FF.

    Thanks. That was my thinking in the store. I was going by first dorsal length. Then I saw where females were very gray without much color.

    Nice pics. I’m no expert. I say first is a female second a male.

    Oh, I was guessing the other way around because of how bright the red was, or that they were both male.
    How can you tell them apart? I see no almost no differences besides the vibrancy of the red/orange tail
