Ive finally managed to get a half decent picture after lots of trying.



I think the main one in the picture is a female as it has a rounded dorsil fin.

saw these at my LFS at the weekend. Was tempted, but having just read how sensitive they are I think I'll give them a miss!

good luck with them, they look great.
