I just got this fish from a local shop and I was wondering what sex you guys thought it might be?

Thanks, Arkangel77

I was thinking femail because of the lower gill area coloration and kinda plain on the top of her body. Thanks, CDC

WhenI put this femail with the other i have (who looks like a femail) they instantly tried to rip each others mouth off - Is that normal behavior for femails? Thanks, Arkangel77

Shes prety but id still say male and yes teritorial. They may just pek for a day or so then be fine make sure you have lots of caves in there for them to hide an get away from each other. if it keeps going on i woul then take it out.

Looks like a female to me. Man, that fish is really torn up! Is all that fin damage from fighting, or is it fin rot? Either way, I suggest dosing Pimafix and Melafix as a preventative measure to prevent fin rot from taking hold (or to get rid of it if you've already got it).

That was from old fights I guess. Fins look's clean they just need time to heal. Ether way - she is back at the LFS where she came from. Thanks, CDC

Looks like my old female. My male was so beautiful and my female so drab looking.
