I've had this little one for a month and (s)he is still staying very light in color. So out of curiosity I wanted to know if its just a dull colored male or a little girl. By what I read the pointed fin means male but the color is very dull so... (s)he seems to be doing fine with his little tank mates. It chases some of them off now and then but most of the time just swims by its self. Likes to swim around the front of the cage and now and then go in the tunnel I made. It doesn't seem to really pick on any of my plants. Now and then it will nibble on a leaf or two but my Barb do the same so he seems to be ok with them.
