Thorichthys maculipinnis

Post by MsCichlid » Thu Sep 20, 2012 5:22 pm

Can anyone inform me on how to sex these fish? Are dorsal spots an indication of sex?

Thanks!

Not always. T. ellioti coming from rio tepango don't have always this spot.

That's the problem. All of the fish have dorsal spots. I have limited tank space and am reluctant to spend $10 each for 6 fish.
