Yes, the dorsal on the male is a bit longer and more pointed. They are often so small in stores that this is hard to determine.

I was just doing a little more research on these guys and found out that a lot of people have trouble keeping RCS with them. I guess they can get really aggressive towards them and will kill/destroy even the adults! That is kind of a bummer because I really like the idea of shrimp.

I went to my lfs yesterday, and sure enough, they do have the Sparkling G's. Never noticed them, I guess. Now, I'm glad I decided to hold off. I too have lots of RCS, and not sure I went them all decimated.

A few weeks ago, when I bought Ghost shrimp, I got a stowaway in my "bag" (a tiny, tiny feeder guppy). I put him in the tank with the RCS, so technically I have a fish in there now.

What about keeping a male fancy guppy with RCS? I was looking at them in the fish store. The fancy guppies are kind of pretty.

I might end up going with guppies or endlers, just so that I could have shrimp. Sparkling gouramis seem really cool and all, but I think I will save them for another tank.
