The length of the fins dont tell the gender of convicts...

Looking at him now they are longer and pointed at the ends so he does look like a boy to me.

I love these guys! They will give your tons of babies if you have a pair and are the best parents. I miss having them. I prefer the dark colored ones like you have over the pinks but they are nice too. Awesome addition. Are you going to pair him up and send me some kids? :)

As you can see this female convict of mine has longer fins then that one.
(her tankmate nipped a few of her fins, now she has her own 35g tank and her fins healed) And Yes i am sure its female because has layed 4+ egg cluches. and infact her fins are longer now then in these pics.

@Crowntailed: Mine does have those little orange specks on it's belly like yours does. They are not changing but they are there.
Also when she sees me go up to the tank she gets yellow in her fins.
