I'm trying to see if this JD is male or female. I have 2 and they mated and have a fry now. I didn't notice what had happened until after the eggs hatched. The other one was eating the fry so I removed it. I'm nin sure if this is the male or female but this one doesn't eat the fry

This is a definite male, no color on the cheeks and lots of spangles on the body, as well as the hump noted above.

Please note the rocks in the tank. One is male and the other is female. Can you all elaborate and note which is which.

Never saw a female rock. o_O I don't understand the relevance of the rocks.

First fish (2 photos) is male, second would have to be female if they've spawned. Doesn't have as much spangling, darker body color. It doesn't appear to be showing the usual blue "beard" of female Dempseys, but that is not always present.
