Have two peppermints both would be 8 - 10 cm in length, have had them for quite some time now, approx 2 and a half years, grew them up from fry I bought when I first got into fish. Anyways, I thought I had a pair when one developed bristles, but now I am thinking I might have two females?? Can someone help me determine the sex of these fish.

Pic one is the one I thought was going to be the male but is now making me think female, it is the bigger of the two fish.

Thanks Trent

On my phone... The pics are blurry at best. 1st pic, lower fish looks to be more male by the bristles. See if there's a little fork at the ends of the bristles. If there is they are male. The second looks more female, but again a better pic is needed. Have a look and see

from the pics, i'm thinking females, but i'm not 100%,

have a close look and see if the bigger one has any forked bristles, or any going up towards the eyes, at 10cm you should be able to tell,
