Male or Female? I see no traces of orange but this one is much lighter then the other 2 in the tank I though it was a male but not so sure this one is also bigger then the other 2 convicts in the tank

I used to breed convicts and I can’t recall having a female without the orange pink on it so I would guess just a young male.

The females don't show the orange all the time, but this guy definitely looks like a male.

That' what I though too but I just talked to someone who said they had breed them too and only 1 in 5 of the females had orange bellys. Pretty sure it's a female based on the shape of the body
