What sex are my fish. JD and a Firemouth
They are both about 2.5 inches. I'm not sure if that matters. I just got them so but there blue hues are more vibrant than in the pic. I have seen my Firemouth flare up his gills once. I read that males do that. Thanks for the help72 gallon saltwater

Im not an expert on J'd so I wont even hazard a guess. Your firemouth looks like a juvenile, often hard to tell at this stage. I would have to say it looks slightly female to me? Pic isn't great so it's hard to commit to an answerMy therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

Don't know about the JD but the firemouth looks female or is a very stressed out male. Both male and females flare.
Don't know about the JD.

On the JD I would lean toward female but because he/she is blurry I really can't say for sure. If you could get another shot of him/her it would help.

JD looks male, though it is still young. Males have the distinct iridescent spots under the eyes, females are blotchy. Females also have more iridescence on the cheeks/gill plate.Originally Posted by i_am_511

I'd have to agree - jd is a male...the firemouth...no clue.
