Starting to assume it's a boy though. No belly at all.

Can't believe how obsessed he is with surfing. Literally how he spends half his day. o.o
May be because he wishes he was back in the 7 gallon from the pet store. :P
Wish I could put him in our 5 gallon but it's not finished the cycle yet.

Our little man is growing up so fast! :3 His fins are getting bigger by the day it seems. Here are a couple pictures of him from this morning, a few of which where you can see his beautiful blue eyes. He's still a complete spaz, going through fits of hyperactive surfing to sleeping on his leaf at the top of the tank so the lazy bugger doesn't have to move to breathe air. xD

I know what an ovipositer is, and I know what a cloaca is...if it is a male, then it can't be an ovipositer. Ok...how about...he ate so much part of his guts is sticking out.

What coppermoon means is that it is impossible for a male to have a real ovipositor... The "imitation ovipositor" that you see is really his cloaca. She is correct, by the way.

With the body being so light, you should be able to candle. Take a flashlight and shine it at the side of the fish.
If it's a girl, you should be able to see the ovaries


(again, only outlined this time)


if no ovary, not a girl! lol

Jeepers guys, no need to get testy. Sorry, I probably read it wrong. If the males don't have actual ovipositors then why do we still say they can still have them just smaller?
