Tough to tell with zebras. They can be the same color and same features. Male and female have egg spots. Only true way is to vent them.
Ok I never done that before. So if both holes are about the same size it’s a male but different size holes it’s a female?

How does it behave? Digging pits and defending an area? I agree, you should vent them. Usually it’s easy to tell when they are around 3in, the females will have one hole larger than the other.

I’ve had fish I thought for sure were one gender but ended up being the other. That may have been me hoping for one thing and ignoring the obvious signs

The big one is the first or second most dominant. Acts like a dude if you ask me. The pinkish one may be to young to tell. It is taking forever to grow. Usually my other ones grew at a good pace but not this one and idk why
