these are adorable little girls. i can't really tell them apart either though. xD
their colors could change with some TLC (as demonstrated by that awesome before & after thread!) so you could wait a little bit to see if either look different/ see which looks better with oscar. of course if they don't change .. i'd go with dot.

Hey Pit I can understand your reasoning witht he body shape. Dot's bottom fins are more fuller and straighter then Spots but mostly I bought Spot because she looked just like Dot and she was adorable :) and who know's with care they'll both probably be amazing :)

Great news about the 20g. I've heard tetras are touchy in new tanks so if they're thriving, you definitely did something right.

Okay, based on your clarifications (thanks!) I have to go with Dot. She looks the healthiest. Spot is cute, though. But they look like sisters. O.O

Awww, Dot has a beauty mark, haha. And Spot's a purty girl too. I still like Dot but Spot's really cute too. Thanks for the photo clarification, Bettawolf.

Personally id not breed them till both are fully fin healthy I see Spot with fin damage on her anal fin and Dot has a split or divided (?) dorsal
Spawing usually results in some minor fin damage so you would want the breeding girl in 110% condition.
other then that they both have very similar body shapes.
I personally think that Dot will prob marble, Spot seems to already begun marbling.
SPOT: has a neater webbing on her caudal fin and straight rays
where as Dots are a little wonky at top

Spot: Ya I think finrot's getting to her because she has a slight edge to the fns. :) some nice clean water would do her wonders but ya I do like Spot's fins. :D Plus I just looked at her fins in the light and her anal and caudal fin's are actually dark red. as for the marbling I suspected she had Marbling but I'm so used to comparing marbling to greying out horses in that the colors go lighter instead of darker.

Dot: Dot's dorsal fin kinda reminds me of a shark fin of sorts with the angle. and her anal fin points back rather then straight down almost as if she is in motion. Her dorsal fin also looks like a split to me because when I look at it very closy there's a new branch of sorts growing in.

Also do you know a good thread that explains rays? I fear I don't completely understand them mostly because I haven't really been able to find a good explaination on them. Thanks much Abby :)
