Hi guys Could anyone Help Me In Sexing My Golden Wonder Panchax'x Please?
im not sure if it is 2 males, 2 female or male and female pair?
1 is bigger and has a "belly" and also a slight bend in the body (looking from above) with a Black Horizontal Stripe On its side.
The smaller 1 however is slimmer, straight and has no stripe. xx

Have Attached 3 pictures of both fish x

2 males
 
I believe you have two males. If you look at the bottom of the fish, near the anal fin, you see a little spike thing right? That is supposed to be their, um...place :oops: Anyways, if they were female, their would be no spiky thing there. About the belly, you might be overfeeding... you might want to be a bit careful. It's stripe could just be a color variation, nothing about the gender. Don't forget to thank me if I helped you! :mrgreen:

I'm not sure. Some say the males have more pointed anal fins. If that were true, the fish on the right would be a male. But mostly, I believe its determined by intensity of color, and by size.

Though, they do not have gonopodium.
