Well..OK! It's kind of blurry. If the vent holes are the same size..its a male. If they are different in size..its usually a female. Also..the male USUALLY has his anal and/or pelvic fin has a deeper black in it as well as a deeper black dorsal fin. As a matter of fact...I learned that today! The LFS just got some beautiful specimens in..and I have 4 males reserved!
Yep looks like a male, and the female is a female. The one is post 10 not sure looks like it need to mature more. And 11 male too.
I used pimafix to sedate them so I could get a photo. Without pimafix I couldn't get my iPhone to focus.
Ohh I don't sedate fish at all, instead you should have hold the fish and told your wife, brother, dog, etc to take a pic. If you hold the fish correctly he shouldnt stuggle to get a pic. To bad one had to die to find out it sex, sorry for your loss.
My wife wants nothing to do with fish lol. She freaked out when I said I might need to use her i6 for the photos. I rehomed the other males. Hope their new home keeps them happy. Only room for one alpha male in my 40 gallon breeder.
