Check for the white dot on the underside, if there is one its a female, if not! Male!

Yeah, both of them have eggspots. And your red-ish one seems to have breeding stripes as well.

you're right with the breeding stripes, Will it matter what color your female is, because my luna is so full of eggs, but I see no stripes, BTW she is white with a blue tint to her

I've been thinking...my white female, Aigis, has never gotten stress stripes. So maybe white bodied females don't get stripes? Or it's just a coincidence...

when i first got my females they had stress stripes and i know they are very easy to see breeding stripes and stress stripes on darker females but not on the lighter ones you'll have a harder time seeing them. I though they were both females but i just wanted to be sure cause i didnt think females flared their gills, and the purple female is very aggressive
