I'm about 99% positive that is a male. If you compare him to his siblings (at least mine and the pics I've seen of the others) he has a lot more fins than any of the females.

Yes, this one and 1 other of the "unsexed" I received have slightly longer fins than the other 4. I think this one will be a male... It will be so crazy to see his fins grow out if he is a male! eek!! The other one I have that is possibly male is darkening up... was a light grizzly grey and now almost black with clear edges.

How's the rest of the babies?

I especially love fatty and goose.

Oh my god! I'm having the same problem! Except Sharks fins are growing (just a tad, though) but he looks like a FAT female. And "it" lays bubble nests. But, I think thats a girl.

EDIT: Looks like I'm wrong, just read your last update. TeeHee

Haha yup it is a boy! :) I got 2 confirmed boys from nib and 2 confirmed females... 2 not sure yet. (Goose and fatty!) ...I think goose is probably a girl, and fatty I still don't know but he/she is in the sorority for now cause he/she does not have super long fins so I think he/she may be female, altho an aggressive female with semi-longer fins.... but nowhere near the fin length of the above guy. We'll see. I will try to post updated pics. I put some on nib's black fire spawn thread the last time I took pics. :D
