Unfortunately it's so difficult to tell the sex when they are that small. They don't really start colouring up till about a year on.

You could try venting but this is an exercise best practiced by the more experienced keepers.

If you feel up to it you could give it a try.

I figured they were too young I was just wondering if someone else who knew more what they were looking at could tell. Thanks for the reply!

No problem. They are quite a boring looking fish until about a year and then they start to turn in to one of the most beautiful.

Good luck
