I can not say I approve of my own method of sexing small fish but here goes. :blink:

Feed them... a LOT of food... tubes will sometimes drop and you can tell the sex.

:laugh: Like I said its a method Ive used but do not necessarily approve of. You will need to use something like bloodwroms to get them to gorge themselves. It is definitely not good for the fish if done regularly but if done only once on fish this small, there is no permanent damage. From my experience the males tend to have to loosen their belt and drop their tubes. You can usually tell they have a smaller skinny tube compared to a female.

Again stressing this is a controversial method! :blush:

Cool looking fish Frank. You sure know how to pick the aggressive ones! :lol: Their behavior reminds me a bit of my wild severums. Super alert and active and kind of aggressive towards each other, but also kind of skittish.

He's doing great! Really happy fish and so much fun to keep. He eats everything I give him, not the picky eater that Poseidon is. You are right about the chickpeas. He loves them.. His colors are really coming out nicely too. He says "Hi!"
