Could anyone help sex my juvenile Ellioti cichlid?

Post by njlevern » Fri Nov 04, 2016 2:34 pm

I have a female (5 inches)[IMG]//uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2016110 ... c85b57.jpg[/IMG]and she picks on the littler one (3 inches)[IMG]//uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/2016110 ... b4be4b.jpg[/IMG]so I think that's why it's dorsal fin isn't as pointed or trailing. I've had it for a few months now and I'm not sure if I can say it's a male or female.

Welcome to the forum. For anyone to see your photo, you'll have to upload it.

I can see the pics. Looks like a male, because no blue/black blotch on the dorsal fin.
Both are really nice fish btw.

On second thought, the blotch isn't always present on females. It's hard to be 100% sure.
