Hi Snowflake, I just stumbled on this I am hoping you are still around, can you help to ID my Senegal Bichir as to if it is male or female?? I am getting an albino soon and I want to see if I can get an opposite sex so they might not be so competitive.

here is a link to the photo (best I could do from my phone)
