CRS sexing. Opinions needed!

So I've noticed that one of the two CRS in my OEBT/BlueRili tank is now berried.
So by logic, either the other CRS is a male or the male responsible has orange eyes.

pictures: male or female?



Thanks!

OK copper, you got me!

It's always so hard to tell with the higher grade CRS . From the first picture it looks female. Then from the second picture the carriage isn't as apparent and looks male.... ugh

Fish Shrimp tanks are like cups of coffee, one is never enough.

That one above does look like a male but doesn't mean the tiger didn't jump at the chance to have some fun. 3-4 weeks time will tell. lol.

Thanks! In either case I'm going to toss the pregnant one in a breeder net. We will see the offspring one way or another.

Features have been exaggerated. Shrimp must be of breeding age to sex.
