  • Age shouldn't be an issue. That's how you distinguish male from female, along with mollies, platies, guppies, and other live bearing fish. It's how the male injects sperm.

    Notice how the females belly fins are fanned out.
    I used to breed to sell. :)

  • Male livebearers have the pointed belly fin like the one on the right, so the other one with the rounded belly fin is a female.
