Does anyone know a good method for determining the sex of a cory? I have a pair of peppered which I can't tell if one is rounder than the other, but one appears markably lighter pepper coloration. Also, would this apply to other types of cories?
i think the only way to tell is that males are a bit slimmer and females slightly rounder and bigger im afraid. i dont think there is any other way thoguh if you find out please let us all know. and this method as far as i know applied to all cories, yes.
do the people who work at the lfs usually know which are males and females?
i'd like to be able to trust them when i say i want one female and one male cory cats
I asked about a couple of other fish and they didn't know. Most of the stuff I'm getting is pretty young and like kateyoup said, I'm getting in groups to try and get a mix. Just for the cories, I'm buying in pairs for more of a variety of types.
