Sexing peps please

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I have just picked up 3 sweet big peps from the auctions, and I'm unsure of two. 1 is definitely a male. The other two are either female or non dominant males.

Here is a pic of a questionable pep the other looks the same.

Cheers :)

If they have bristles running up their nose and across their nose it's a male, if they have bristles running across the nose but nose going up the nose it's a female. Females also have a 'bony' nose, males have soft noses (just run your finer along it's nose before you put it in the tank if unsure.)

I found the best way to sex them is putting them on an ice cream lid next to each other. FEMA have wider bodies than the boys. So if you put you known male next to the other two you should see the difference. :) ( its how I sex even the common, they all seem to be the same. Girls have a wider body. ( that's if there are no bristles yet, it hasn't steered me wrong yet. Lol) )
