    Hey guys. Bought a krib a couple days a ago and I could use your help trying to sex it. I'm suspecting it's a female judging by the dorsal fin being more so rounded, but still can't confirm. Here are some pics, sorry they aren't better...

    Was the first pic taken some time from the last pic? this looks like a young fish and I agree it looks more like a female in the first pic but looking at the last pic it seems more male to me.

    The first picture was taken a day earlier. The last pic the fins are moving which is why they look more pointed. I've posted this pics on a couple other forums and some people are saying it's a male.

    I'd give it some more time to mature then to be sure :) there are other things that point to it being male apart from the pointy fins is the more elongate body shape and the colour on the dorsal going right to the tip, these are all male attributes, keep us posted on what you get!
