    Any chance of sexing my Polleni´s ?

    I have 2 Polleni´s. They are 3-4"
    In the store the two of them had teamed up and were beating the crap out of the other Polleni in the tank.
    Were getting bigger and stuck together so i was hoping it was a pair.

    I have had them now for 5 weeks. One is a little bigger and is dominant.

    Any way to see of i have a male + female or two males?

    The bigger one:


    and the smaller one:


    Not the best photos, were just trying the get a clear profile pic of them.

    Another one, just for fun, taken 2 days after i got them:

    I know nothing of this species but knowing cichlids in general if both are big enough to breed I would say that the top one is a male and the bottom one a female.

    Adult male fish are much larger than females and develop longer extensions on the dorsal and anal fins. They also tend to have a more rounded head shape. per www.seriouslyfish.com
    The average woman would rather have beauty that brains because the average man can see better that he can think!
