    Default JD Sexing? And 2 Others(africans?)

    Just took over ownership of a 55 Gal. tank. Has a what I know for sure is a Jack Dempsey but I can't tell the sex of it. Also Tank came with too smaller electric yellow labs but I can't tell if they're male of female yet
    Anyhelp would rock!
    Thanks in Advance!

    I'll copy this to the African ID forum for you, but I don't believe yellow labs show sexual dimorphism.

    more sppangles on the body than the gills for males, more on the gills less on the body for females.

    can kinda be seen here m/f together
