    Telling males from females

    Hey mates Iím having a bit of a tough time trying to figure out the sex of 2 fish.

    I checked their vents

    Stubble on face but the vent shape is female based on my readings.

    Stubble on face but vent shape is female based on my readings.

    Is it that the vents of both are the same but the overall shape is different?

    This is a confirmed female vent

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

    so hard to tell when small even dealers will post things like un-sexed on fish for sale. the rule use to be if it has a hole or a O on the anal part its male if it is a Y or T shape is it female. as well as body shape as females tend to have a bigger body shape .
