    Its reeeeeeeeeally hard to determine genders in black kuhlis. They say a male has a more paddle-shaped dorsal fin, whatever that means. And if they breed, during breeding time when the female is ovulating her ovaries are green and she fattens up and the green spots show on her belly near the back. None of that has helped me though, i still cant tell any apart.

    I searched up also how to tell them apart and i couldnt tell them apart either just by looking at them. Thank you
