ID glofish gender

How do you tell the difference in a male & female glofish. Is it the same as guppies. Idk the glofish will have eggs but guppies will have fry.

Glofish are egg layers, but it is illegal to breed and sell them because of a patent.

I'm assuming you are talking about the original glofish danios as I say this. The female will be plumper and a tad bigger while the male is slim.
