    Zebrina cannot be sexed through coloring. You need to have an ultrasound for 100% confirmation, or you wait for them to spawn and then have fry. They do get sexually mature at ~9.5" standard length.

    I was told they were a pair, male and female by the importer who deals with these Zebrina for a living. He's been dealing with pikes especially Zebrina for years.

    Great info, not familiar with pike-but thought they could have slight color differences like amny other fish do. That link is very neat, thanks for sharing.

    I hope that the importer is correct. Wonder if they can be bred? If so you are sitting on a fortune, lol

    They seem shell shocked at the size of the tank. They definately are the stars.
