I was pretty sure about the above fish being a female (I too went by the blue spots in the black spot theory). I began to question it when the chasing turned into fighting.. quite vicious at that. It seems to go in phases, so probably related to mating.
Does anyone know if the males start off with no second ray to the dorsal fin? As this is what it looks like. I thought she may be a he who just hadn't developed the length there yet.

Hoping to get a nice big tank for the other room (~300L / 65g?).
Any ideas on which way the split the above group of fish?

due to breeding practices of those who import these fish ,I would think anything is possible. They require soft water for longterm health but tank raised specimens can adapt to slightly higher PH values. They do much better in temp. of 82 to84 degrees. This should help you figure out how to split the two tanks if that is what you decide to do.
