Thanks for the comments!

As for the blue specks, we have 3 of these that look pretty much identical. They all have the specs. I have no idea what sex they are, since there is no difference in coloration between males and females like 'regular' GBRs. At least I can't see anything that would help me determine that. One of the 3 is a bit smaller than the others, but they all seem to get along really well. I guess they could all be female since they seem pretty docile.

i was told that males have a high spikey thing on the dorsal, so that looks like a male if that is true.
