Identification Pelvicachroma pulcher male?

Post by jamcar » Mon Apr 27, 2015 12:45 pm

I bought four fish from my LFS but they all seem to be female. Then I found a fish in my town pet shop but I am not sure if it is a male either. The fish in front of the terrible picture I attached is female because she dug a hollow under the power filter and laid eggs. I really want to breed her. Is the fish behind her a male? He seems to have the fin shape but his colour does not extend forward to his chin and his horizontal stripe is very pale. He was even more monochromatic in the community tank but got a little colour when I introduced him to her tank.

The fish on the left appears to be female krib and the fish on the right (front) is a male krib.
