    I have had two peacock gudgeons in my tank for about six months. I originally thought I had two females because neither fish had a bump on the head. Recently one has really started to develop a bump so now I am thinking he might be male. I have also noticed that neither one has a black trim on the analfin. Do you think I have two females, two males, or one of each? If I do have two males, is that a problem? Thanks!

    Those are both males. Not sure how they will react to one another with no females to compete over.

    At first I thought maybe the 2nd one is a female but I'm fairly sure you have two males. I had 2 males and 1 female once in a 20 long. The males constantly pestered the female. The males got along otherwise but one of them was always trying to court the female.
