So I finished off my South American 40 gal today with a pair of GBRs. The guy at the fish store told me that one was male and one was female, but I just wanted to post some pics on here and make sure.
Which one is male and which is female?
Look for a pink belly on the female. If they're young it will be hard to distinguish them.
Going of nothing other than the caudal fin shape I would say the top is female and the bottom is male. I would still watch their behavior. If the bottom one is male he will make it known through his behavior.
They are a little young to tell for sure.
Yes. Observe the way they interact, once they are settled. The fish knows what it is and they will act accordingly toward each other.;-)
