Hi,

I've had these two Nyererei for over a year from juvenile in my main tank.

Can anyone tell if they are male or female?

One is pretty skinny, with the black bars appearing when aggressive.

The second eats loads and is bigger, black bars come out when aggressive but slighlty less than the other.

One has 2 egg spots and the other 1 if that makes a diff in this case.

Mixed African tank.

Thanks in advance,

The first kinda shows some faint male signs, but both seem more female. Be aware that a male can be subdued among larger fish, but you would think that if there was a male he would at least show more color. Those eggspots are pretty unremarkable, which females can have. Males should have more distinct larger eggspots
