I have 2 JD that i got 8 months ago as juveniles. Small one is 4 inches and big one is 6 inches. They seem to hang out together alot but the big one chases the small one during feeding time. They are the only 2 fish in a 75 gallon tank. Thanks

Small is female, big is male. Females have blue on the bottom of the gill covers. That and subtle differences in head and body shape, and fin length.

Thanks. I have read about the color and head shape but wasn't sure. I always get good help and gain knowledge about my fish.

Hey, I am looking for a female and found a local ebay seller who has several (4) JD's but is not sure what sex they are. Can you look at these 4 images and tell me if any are female?
