G'day

I agree they often have bristles around their mouth. Even some of the females as well shock.gif but not until they are lot older.

But if it is a young fish then I would say you have a boy.

O/SPOT BN have the bristles around the lip at a young age.The males will first start to show their sex by getting a bristle just above the row around there lip.The rest start to appear from then on.They dont reach breeding maturity till around 3-3 1/2 yr old.Adults are brown with the small spots.Hope this helps.

I would have to disagree and say that they are able to reach maturity much earlier. My male started to spawn around the 18 month mark. Was with a much older female but male developed quickly. And very large spawns. Some upto 150 fry. Find them to breed much earlier and have larger spwans than peps.
