Youy can check the info on the fish in our profiles, click on the shaded name or use the second tab from the left in the blue bar above. It will tell you the male/female differences if any exist.
On suitable fish, first question is, what are your water parameters? Hardness and pH, out of the tap, should be the first point in deciding possible fish, as not all fish live well in the same type opf water. You should have a pH tst kit, something you can use, and test your tap water (let it sit out for a day before testing to allow the CO2 to dissipate for a more accurate reading). The hardness you can find out from your water supply people (they might know the pH too).
