i know males tend to be bigger...I have 5 occies and looks like 1 female 4 males....any behavioral differences between the sexes to pick up on. 4 of what I am guessing are males have territories staked out....3 in shells and 1 in rock pile...the female(smaller) kind of hangs around and gets chased by others when she gets too close...2 out of the 3 males are landscaping around shells by either doing that thing with their tails that kicks up all the sand or digging under shell a big pit near opening by moving sand with mouth...I guess my long winded question is are there any specific behaviors that males or females do that can help distinguish sex and does my above guessing(about males/females) seem on the money?

My males and females are all aggressive.. I only know because they are all the same age and my males are double the size. I read that males tend to have golden tipped fins and females have white.. Which, in any case seems like the same color on a fish.. lol :D
