Hello everyone. I've been wanting a gt for a while and saw some at the lfs today. I'm wanting to get a male, however I've been reading a lot of conflicting info about sexing them. Some sites say you can vent them or look for pointy anal fins at a young age. Is this true? The fish at the store are small 2.5 3". When I looked today there was one much larger than the rest with a lot more color and seemed very dominant. Could I just pick that one up and assume he's a male ?

Females can have pointy fins.


At that size, you can sex a GT like A JD.

The larger one is more likely male.

For those interested,

Here is a link to pictures of male and female green terrors. Notice how the sexing is similar to JDs

I wasn't able to look at that link. But from what I understand females look like Oo underneath whereas males are oo. Is that right?

Good link Rock.. judging from that I appear to have a female. Now why do her and my male Convict hate each other so much?(lol)


I may not be the Boss, but I'm ALWAYS right!
