As I have stated before, I am a complete novice.

How do I knw what sex my convicts are? There are 5 cichlids in the tank, 2 yellow ones, 2 which seem so be convicts, one of which is a beautiful colour etc, but the other is really dull. I first thought this might be an indication that it is female?But now Im not sure. The 5th fish is an ugly black-brownish looking fish?

This is my gfs tank and the fish were just sold to her at a petshop without any explanation.

Ill try get some pictures
