Hi I was wondering whether someone could help me with this rather unfortunate problem.

The place that sells rotkeils seems to have normal green severums mixed with them. But the clues aren't very clear; I haven't been obsessed in rotkeils before and still don't know their characteristics because info is rare.... :(

Could somebody help me in distinguishing them, either by words, or(hopefully) with pictures? I'd really be grateful if so :)

It's hard to tell the difference at a young age if not impossible. Rotkeil Severums will have a dark red anal fin and will start to show red spots in their face as well as on their head sometimes in the belly. The rotkeil females will have a lot less red in some cases.

Here is a pic or my Rotkeils at about the size of a silver dollar.
