Sexing my BD

Post by Alex » 31 Mar 2008, 22:49

Hello dear friends! :hello2:

I did for a couple of week ago tryed a new pair in one of my breeding tanks...a blue diamond and a blue turqoise. The BD is realy a heavy weight fish..so I thought that he was an...HE! :D BUT!

Today i saw that they had spawned, and emediatly had eaten the eggs...and then I saw that both of them had similar..eh...what you call it...genetails? :blush3:

Here is some pics of the pair, and one closeup on the BD "male"

The two first pictures are on the BD....so...what do you think? Male or female?
