Isla Taboga Panama via Milwaukee
A young pair of Cryptoheros panamense just beginning to color up.
The female has a similar dark blotch in the dorsal, with a bright ring surrounding it, very much like their close cousin above, the myrnae. She also has a dark lappet in first spiny rays of the dorsal.

below the male.

Hello,

Could you please help me with the sexing of this two jags? They act like a pair. The first one is a male but I'm not sure for the second one.
