How to tell if Seprae Tetra is Male or Female
Hey everyone. Yesterday I bought four new fish for my tank which are Serpae Tetra fish! Here's my question. Are male serpae tetra fish larger than females? Only wondering as one of my four is signifficantly larger by about .2" than the others. I'm asking as I'm concerned if the larger ones are female, then I'm worried she will be pestered to mate and possibly die of stress. Although I haven't seen any of them being physically "interested" in another. Thanks for any help!

...and males usually are brighter in redness colour, females are always rounder/larger.
Yes I did notice a small display of two trying to show their dominance in front of the female. It did result in a small stand off that ended up with a fin nip but not major and it isn't visible and still swims perfectly and is still very healthy. The funny thing was the female seems to stay with the other male that wasn't involved in the small fight haha
Serpae need a larger group to ease the stress this is causing, as has already been witnessed. No less than 8-12 Serpae Tetra makes their lives livable.
