    So is it possible to sex an Asian bumblebee catfish? Mine is getting pretty large now (5"!) and I figure it's probably easier to sex big vs small. Is there any give aways? Or just the usual things like "rounder tummy" or "bigger than male" stuff?

    Yep, both of those. Difficult with just one fish. If you put up a picture we could make a fair guess...

    It's gonna be too hard to get a picture since s/he likes being in the dark areas of the tank. Honestly I think it's a girl because the tummy is normally very rounded.
    EDIT: here I got a video because she came out for food and I think I had a fish die in the back of my tank

    *bump* any ideas? I would like to have it sexed so I can sell it better. It will probably go out next month.
