Females will be a bit larger,plumper, after a year, Is what I believe.
Other than that, I have no clue.

1077 is correct on the external differences. Sexual maturity is not reached for several years, and reports of spawning in aquaria are very limited. This is explained more in our profile. Fish profiles are under the second tab from the left in the blue bar across the top of the page, or you can click on the name when it is shaded in posts, example Clown Loach. Where data is available on external gender differences, this is mentioned in the profile of the species.
