In an effort to achieve an all male tank I have purchased groups of juvenile fish with expectations that some might not make it and of the ones that did at least one would be male.

Looking back I think I should have just spent the money and bought male fish...

Now I have more than a few females and almost all look the same. Would like to sell/trade them but not sure how to identify some as they all look about the same shape/color.

Any ideas on this?

I'm in the same boat. I have no idea...I was thinking of taking them to the LFS and letting them put them in the mixed tank, but I feel bad because I know they are good females, of some species.

He's not saying they are juvies that need to be identified. He's saying he has several species of females that are similar in looks and are hard to specify which fish is which species.

If most of the females look the same I'm guessing that you have mostly haps/peacocks? If you can't tell them apart, there's really not a good solution :-?

Yes, they are all haps/peacocks so they look very similar.

This is kind of what I thought... no good way to tell them apart.

Thank you for the posts!
