How to sex a leopard danio

I've read that male zebra danios have gold between their stripes and are torpedo shaped, whereas the females have big white bellies. Just out of curiosity, how would I sex my leopard danio?

The easiest way is just to compare sizes and body shapes. Females generally get a bit bigger than males and will have a much fatter belly than the males due to the eggs.
