Males are more colorful and have more elaborate fins.
Does that Help any? Do you already have some?
If so can we see pictures so I can tell you the sex's?

we have 2 that are about 1 1/2 years old and just got 3 juviniles yesterday they are prolly half the sive of the other 2..

Heres a pic of one of the large ones..



From what i can tell they all look the same..Oh my i hope we don't have all males...the 2 larger ones are always squaring off like there testing each other.Kinda like they are trying to dominate each other..I'll try to get some more pics of the others soon if i can get lucky and get a decent shot.

heres a few more pics..







I can't tell them apart, one site i read said the males are bigger and a different site says the females are bigger..

i took about a 1 minute video if that helps..
