Sexing

Looking at the fish from above, the female is widest at the center of the body, while the male is widest just behind the pectoral fins.
When they are well fed or in breeding condition the female is always plumper, also seen from the side.

Males are normally smaller than females. Their pelvic (ventral) fins are more pointed and have small dark spots.
Females are normally larger, have shorter pectoral fin. Their pelvic (ventral) fins are clear and rounded to form a pouch for the eggs when spawning.
