[Killietalk] American Flag Fish
Hello list, my name is Ben. I am just starting to get into the Killiefish hobby. I purchased some American Flag Fish (Jordanella floridae) and i'm having a really hard time figuring out what sex my fish are. I know that the males and females have the big black eye just below the start of the dorsal fin. It is said on many web sites that females have another "eye" on the rear of the dorsal fin, outlined by a white iris. All of my fish have some form of black spot on the rear of the dorsal fin. One fish (#1) in particular has a very obvious black eye with a white iris, and no red fins anywhere else on its body, however another fish (#2) has a slightly visible blackish marking on the rear of the dorsal fin and has red anal fins. I know that #1 is female, but what is #2?
thanks for your help.
