    Anyone have any idea about sexing fish? I thought I had a few big females but they were flaring at each other so now I don’t know. Most of them are males they’re a lot smaller, more colourful and have bigger fins, the two or three I think are females they’re nearly twice as wide and fat as the males and have smaller fin but act like males.

    I'm rubbish at sexing from photos, but those in the photos all look female to me. When I had WCMMs I found it quite easy to tell when I had them side by side, as the extra red on the males' fins was quite obvious.
