But yeah, on a fish that size it's belly would be quite pink. Maybe not all the time, but intermittently for sure.

I agree 100% that the first fish is a male. You should really work with those other two rams you have, they do not look in good shape at all. I highly suggest you move them to a less competitive tank and deworm them.

i need help sexing the other 2, they're about 2/3 the size of the large one. and were like that when i bought them. they look a bit sickly, but i think its because they're not nearly the size of the other one. as far as worms. how can i tell if they have them? the only remotly agressive fish i have are a rainbow shark, the ram, and a betta who only seems to flash his size at the ram, not since the other 2 were introduced tho.

They are too small and too stressed to sex. The sunken stomach and general shape of the fish is concerning. TBH, I wouldn't have bought it. The second one looks a little better.

Supposedly there are different strains of GBRs. I've seen some labeled as just "blue ram". From what I've seen, they are of a lower quality and are priced accordingly. Your new ones look like those fish.

This is identical to the thread in the general area, so I have merged the two.
