My 3 fine gentlemen(?)

So if anyone remembers back in November I ordered about 20 angle fish and all but 3 disappeared. Assuming they were eaten...since they were never found.

These are my 3 survivors and it looks like 3 males so this will be interesting. The smallest one has a little deformity on its dorsal fin, itís not being nipped or bullies yet it has always had a deep ridge there!

Hope you all like them and if you can confirm they are not all males please let me know! Click image for larger version

Lol thatís the mystery, they came very small and slow, after 2 weeks of QT they went into the 110g with 3 dojo loaches, 6 Corys, 8, ottos and about 16 rummy noses.

I went to visit family for turkey day and when I can back everyone was missing! I cleared out the filter, checked the lines did a big water change looking for them and they were no where on the floor. The only thing I could think of is the person, whoís not a fish guy and I visit daily, stole them all or the loaches munched on them when they were young and slow!

Only sure way to sex angels is to see their breeding tubes . Most other guesses will be just that ,guesses...
I am not a super angel fan but those are good looking fish !

Thank you!

Is that your nice way of saying looking for their external penis?

Haha yes I have been looking at it recently but itís hard to tell the difference Iím not sure if itís because itís he same or they are not fully mature yet. Iíll keep an eye on it for sure though

Most species of fish do not have what would technically constitute as a "penis". Most fish fertilization occurs externally.

In angelfish, males and females both have genital papilla or "breeding tubes".
The female will develop a breeding tube when she is ready to lay eggs. The female tube is usually larger and rounder.
