i have a couple of green terror cichlids but cant tell the sex help plz...and thank u
males get a hump on their heads at as small as 3-4" females dont
I know this threads old, But not all male get the nuchal hump. i had a 9+ male that lived 9 years and never did develope the nuchal hump. Some differances is that males are much more coloured than females. Males tend to have iridescent greenish blue highlights to them. Females are more dull and males generally have longer fin extension's. In most cases the males are bigger than females.
With most cichlids, the male is usually the fish with a large hump on its forehead...The hump is named the "kok........"Another way of sureing yourself it is a male is by looking at the vent tube, the tube that sometimes sticks out of the butt.........Males have a thin tube, females have a much thicker tube............
If you are asking the sexual difference between the two, then you must be informed that there are two types of SAUMS.......One saum has GOLDEN egdes, the other type has WHITE edges...........
Males tend to have a hump on their forehead plus they also tend to be more colorful and their dorsal fin is longer and fancy!
