ID:	285167 also is there any physical differences that define male and female eg: the blue 1 now has bump in front of its pelvic fin, does that make her the female??

I wouldn't know how to tell genders, but the bump is most likely a breeding tube. If you observe them, then you can see them lay eggs from the breeding tube. The male has one too, but it really doesn't protrude out so far and it is smaller. They look really good, good luck!
