I go to the fish store everytime but I can't seem to know how to sex them. I read a article that said the top fin can tell the gender of the fish. Anyone know anyway of sexing them?

depends on the species... oscars are impossible to sex by looking at them...

I've never been worried about breeding personally, so sex of the fish is inconsequential to me. I'm sure googling around with the type of fish you have and would yield some quick results.

Get a big group, 6+ and let them pair off. When they do, rehome the ones you don't wish to keep, then you'll have your breeding pair. Time and patience is the name of that game ;)
