I posted a while ago with the suspicion that my angelfish were a breeding pair but I was told that I couldn't be sure without seeing the breeding tube. I noticed this in the morning is this a male angelfish?

You are going to need a closer pic of the tube because from what I see, it's a female. Males will have a point like a pencil point and usually faces forward a bit while the female's tube is more like the eraser end of a pencil and faces downward.
 
Ahhhh I thought it was the other way around. I thought males had the broader breeding tube. When I get home I can try to take a picture of the other one. Theirs is much thinner and sharper

You may be surprised by the time you get home. There may be eggs already considering how far that tube is extended. ;)
