need help identifying the sexes of my Angel Fish

Hello

It is nearly imposibble to tell the gender of angelfishes until they are adult, however adult are 5-6 inches in body length and 12 inches tall from fin tip to fin tip (maybe for males) it depends on the size of the tank, however here is the difference if you wanna know.Click image for larger version

ID:	275415 the males can get territorial during spawning/breeding.

i have the two smaller ones in 1 tank and the other one in a different tank

i just wanna be sure i have a male/female combo

please let me know what 2 are most likely the pair because when all 3 were together, the big one basically was too aggressive to the smaller 2


i want to purchase another tank for them to breed but are they too small/young for that yet?

The breeder I purchased my angels from said that 7 is a good number to start with if you are looking for a pair. Just because you have a male and female doesn't guarantee they will pair.

7 seems like a whole new tank

already got 5 healthy tanks but it would be worth it to try and breed angels..imo

He said he just gets rid of the ones who don't pair.
