if one of your convicts has any orange on its belly then its a female. if not then male. or if one has a lump on its head then its a male. they loook good. im guessin that was your final choice for your predator tank.

Mike,

I already knew all about the female and male difference, you don't need to tell me. Just wanted somone to secound me.

Convicts are not predators, i'm obv. not doing my predator tank until later or I would of said something.

I honestly dont see any distinguishing features that yell female to me. From what i see in those pic's, you have 2 males. I would like to see updated pic's so i can try and sex them for you. They look good though,

Well I know I have a male and female, I think I screwed up and took a picture of the same fish hahaha.

I'll go snap some pictures now and post them up.

I might also take a video, since those convicts of mine do NOT sit still lol.

Here you go Larry, some more pictures. Hope this helps you better. You can clearly tell now, I think I just wasn't paying attention when I shot those first ones.

Here is the Male (Can't believe I got the shot of him doing that.)


Here is the Female


Pictures are kind of blurry because of the fact they won't stop moving. Hope that clairifies things. (Don't think I spelled that right. )

SORRY!!! I keep talking to a Larry on here so I wasn't paying attention, you can tell I do that a lot. God I feel dumb.

Yeah, i've been doing frequent water changes and feeding them a lot more often with freeze dried blood worms through out the day, then high quality flake food before lights out. Can't wait.
