If there are external differences, they will be mentioned in our profile of the species. Click shaded names, Black Widow Tetra [aka Black Skirt, the White is the same species] and Buenos Aires Tetra. [If the name as it appears in the profile is used identically in posts, it will shade.]

I've got skirts, and the males are much skinnier than the females. The area from their faces to their bottom fins are more of a quarter circle shape in females, where as males are parallel to the arch at the top of their bodies.
