Sexing cories
 
Hi everyone. I just wanna know if there's a way you can sex cories. I don't mean to breed, but just to tell if its male or female. I heard about the females being more robust, but is that the only way?

Is the only way I know of. The best way I have seen is to look at them when they are resting on the bottom. Females, being more robust, when they are on the bottom, their barbels and head rest high odff the substrate when their belly and tail touch it. Males heads will be almost touching the substarte. I know it doesn't help much but is the only thing I have ever found. Except watching them lay eggs. lol
