The males have a more circular body, females have a angular body. Also when breeding their sex organ will show. Males are more blunt and short while females are larger to lay eggs.

When they are breeding what does the male sex organ do? Is it the fertilizer? Also will the female's body be larger?

Last question. lol do you think you can maybe get a picture of male and female?

Yes it is used to fertilizing the eggs. I do not have any pictures but I am sure there are many online.

Okay thanks anyway. So when you look at a picture of an angelfish, what if the first thing that you look at to determine the sex?

Also when they are babies can you tell their sex even then?

For example, is this a male or a female?:

I have never breed angelfish so I am not to sure about the young if you can tell.
But that picture most likely is a female since the front fins are not forked. But it is hard to tell. Also females will have a deeper bump in their foreheads.

When you say the "front fins" arent forked, what do you mean? The ventrals?

Also, is it true that when angelfish get old enough, they choose their pairs (breeding pairs)?

Yes the vetrals. With males they are typically more jagged looking almost forked, females are smooth looking.

I am not to sure if they choose pairs. I know the ones I have had they seem to choose who they like, at the moment I have only 3 but 2 of them are always together, but they dont want nothing to do with the 3rd one.
