Sorry no pics , but mine are slowly becoming more turquoise as they grow. My male is more colored up than the female . Their color started around their head and is slowly spreading back. Just be patient, they will get there.
Its hard to sex Severums when they are young, the slowly develop indicators as they grow. I have a female that we could tell when she was 2" long, and a male that we weren't completely sure about untill he was over 3".
Basically, as they mature, males will develop a more pronounced, square shape to their head and their dorsal and anal fins become long and pointy, sometimes reaching the length of their tail.
Females do not develop either of these characteristics and their dorsal and anal fins stay short and rounded.
Either way they are beautiful fish, they have a lot of personality and love to entertain!
wow! 11??? thats awesome. is that normal for sevs?
since this is a sev thread i hope its ok to ask this here, but i am starting to think that as my two greens get bigger that they are both felames. they both have extremely rounded fins,even though they are still tiny. if they are both females like i am thinking, how will that work out in the long run? they get along fine now, one chases the other when its feeding time, but nothing bad. do you guys think two females will grow up ok together or am i asking a dumb question?
i will try to figure out how to get pictures on here so i can actually make a contribution to this thread instead of using it to ask questions.
