Green Terror - This isn’t new

Postby kramacha17 » Mon Feb 22, 2021 10:25 am

Ofcourse a very common question, but need some expert opinions. It’s almost impossible to find green terrors (gold/orange saums) in Vancouver canada. I finally got my hands on one. But I’m unable to sex this one. Is this a male or female?

I do see the nucal hump abd long dorsal fin while moving but I also have doubts as in some angles, doesn’t seem long enough. Anyone able to say for sure from these pics??

I'd say that's a male. Fairly nice one, though the fin borders are a little light colored.

Sweet. Thanks a lot. The pic didn’t come out good but this one had the thickest abs brightest fin border of all the juvs in the lfs. Ofcourse that doesn’t mean it’s the best but the best I could find in that group.
