Male or female GBR?


Just wondering if I can get a confirmation of a male/female pair. Or just a sub dominant male. They don't really fight ever, actually the less colorful one will sometimes chase the darker one.

No pink in the stomachs leads me to think they are both males.

that would be my guess as well, how long have they been in the tank though? It might color up more once they are more comfortable and then you will be able to tell much more accurately

Looks like a hybrid between German blue and Gold ram. With that long fin on its back, Probably a male.

+one for two males.
Adding just one female at this point, is likely to result in one of the males getting bullied by dominant male seeking to claim breeding right's.
For such a small fish,, they can be nasty with each other during battles over breeding right's to just one female.
Adding two or three females if floor space in tank permit's, would be the way to go otherwise,, I would leave thing's be or remove one of the males should you decide to place but one female in the tank.
