the only thing i know/heard about sexing convicts is an orange/yellow belly??? so i think yours would be a male... i could be wrong but thats my efforts haha


the one thing about convicts or at least my convicts is i have one like yours pictured above, but i also have another thats really dark and u can almost not see the bars... wondering if thats a sex thing or maybe a different type of convict or maybe just an aggression/attitude thing?

Judging by the shape/size it's a female. That's what my female looks like except she has A LOT of color. If you have any other questions let me know. I love convicts!

It does look like a male though because it has no color... Ralphie's right. It's a male.

Sorry about the blurry pic. The reason why I wanted to know if it was a male or female is that I HAD a total of 3 convicts. Last week one turned up dead and I noticed Sat that the were 2 batches of eggs in my tank. Both convicts are fanning a pile. I was just wondering if both male and female fan the eggs? Thanks for the help!!
