    I'm pretty sure that's a young male. The dorsal ray doesn't look extended, but it still looks more spiky than my female GBRs. The body looks longer and leaner to me and I feel there would be a hint of pink on the belly if it was female. The other clue is no iridescent blue specks in the black dot. My 2 cents.

    Thanks for the reply...most of the males I have had haven't had these marking. Most of my females have and pinkish bellies.

    Here's a different pic..

    Idk, my guess is still a male. The pelvic fins look more pointed and also the other end of the dorsal.

    Here's a pic of one of my females (gravid) when she was young

    Looks like a male to me with the way the fins are very pronounced and come to a point at the end of the dorsal

    Thanks Joe...

    Update...definitely a male and paired up with a female last night. Took over the clay dish. In their own tank now.

    I moved the Gold Ram into my 40g due to nothing happening with the female GBR. Introduced a GBR male and they seemed to hit it off. Just them in their own tank. Only thing is, she has never laid eggs yet. About 6 months old.

    That doesn't mean anything. Some females don't lay eggs until there's a male present. My smallest female GBR just laid eggs for the first time at a year old or more. Feed them lots of nutritious foods and keep the water clean, they will breed no doubt!

    Thanks...I'll keep an eye on her.

    While cleaning tanks tonight, I inadvertently vacuumed up some eggs that I didn't see laid on the silicone. Luckily I was able to save them in a bowl and put an air stone on them. Let's see if anything comes of that.

    Is there anything else in the tank where you found the eggs? Good luck! I hope they are breeding for you!
