Here the two are when I first out them together. It's an awful blurry picture, but I think the stripes were not there initially. I am really leaning towards male.

Thank you everyone. Moonshine says "Of course I'm a boy! Now, tell me how beautiful I am!"

Here is his latest bubble nest in his new 5.5 gallon tank. I have four fish tanks in my bedroom and there are two in mt son's room. Is this normal? O.O

It's amazing how much we can agonize over genders on these fish and then, once we finally make a decision, they are like "duh! Why didn't you notice?" and start acting completely male/female true to form.

I personally wouldn't be able to tell boy or girl on yours, but the breeding stripes on the tankmate female are a dead giveaway! Is this fish very young? Knowing he's a male, he looks like a skinny young dude.

Happy and successful breeding to you!

I am not sure, but he was super small when I got him. The breeder I got 4 of my females from was replacing a DOA fish. It was his first DOA and he felt really bad. I almost left this poor guy in the shipping box as I shrieked with excitement and grabbed the bag with my copper and red female. I went back to get the box and this little yellow fish was there with a note apologizing for the DOA and saying he was giving me his first yellow HM plakat female. I do think he was very young, He was in my sorority tank for over a month. I thought he was so dainty, He is super fast, chased the girls all over. No wonder!
