Blue acara. Are these both male? #1
Hey everyone!

I'm just wanting to try and find out if both of my Blue Acara's are male as i can't really tell the difference?

These look too young to sex reliably at the moment, but if I had to guess I'd say female at the left, male on the right. More pics showing their dorsal fins would help.

Neither are showing clear signs of being male at the moment, but they do look quite small so too young to tell

Re: Blue acara. Are these both male? #10
so today I've noticed the two Acara's acting really strange and digging up one of my plants. There appears to be a few eggs on the leaf but at times it looks like they're just eating them etc. I guess i do have a pair.
