With young Apisto's it can be difficult to sex, as mentioned some will dress as females to avoid aggression.

I keep adult Cacatuoides and Panduro and I have some Macmasteri juvies as well.

One noticeable difference in my adult fish - the Cac's and Panduro's: my females carry black in their pelvic fins and my males do not.

Here is my male Cac.



Here is my female Cac with fry.



Here is my male Panduro on left and his female on right.



Yes on #1 male

Yes I think on #2 female

To soon to tell on #3

But you have some nice fish, desirable fish where males are easy to sell if she turns out to be a he :)

Thank you.
Sadly I'm down to a male and a female, the store doesn't have any more females. Well, I have two females. This one doesn't look like she's going to make it it. She is pretty unactive and won't eat anything. I am hopefully heading to an auction next weekend where I will search for another female if this one doesn't pull through.



An updated shot of the male.. He is extremely aggressive. The leaves are helping out with hiding places a lot though. I am wondering if he is trying to breed but they are not ready, or if he is just a mean fish. He does display to them a lot..
