    I know the wider ones are females, I've also seen something about a more pointed dorsal fin being male?? How else can you sex cories?

    :( I don't see a difference, so can ya'll tell: do I have all female?male?both?neither? (that'd be interesting!)

    It is hard to tell from the pic as the white sand makes it impossible to see the analfins. Bronze cory females have more fan shaped analfins which when breeding they form a basket with and carry the eggs around until they find a place they like and the males have more pointed ones. Females are also fatter looking and when really gravid they seem to rock on their bellies.

    Overhead pics are gonna be alot harder than I thought due to duckweed/plants and high surface movement, here's some better pics anyways though:

    however I shot a video... dunno if this'll help any but if you can tell me what you think I have, maybe I can see it too instead of me just trying to guess :p [video=youtube;sw39B2B_vtA]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sw39B2B_vtA[/video]
