Hey all

I am New to this forum and just recently started with Channa Asiatica.

Now I want a mate for him but don't know if it is a male or female.

Does someone know?

Regards

Enrico

I've only seen these twice in person and they were both identified to me as males.

Yours has a similar amount of spots on the dorsal fin. So I'd vote male.

But again, limited experience, anyone else confirm.

"Males develop more-extended dorsal and anal fins and possess a far greater number of silvery spots on the body and fins than females.

Adult females tend to appear rounder-bellied than males."
