Hi L168 - butterfly plecos 3235774899
I'm about to get a trio of these cuties but would like to know how to sex them (as in identification M/F).
I have been told they are about 6cm and 6 months off breeding age so would really like some idea if there are any distinguishing features at that stage of development.
Sorry, I have no photos of them yet.

Adult males have "hairy" pectoral fins. I don't know any other way to tell. You might have to wait a bit to sex them.

Thanks Kris,
Yeah, kinda reminds me of when I got hairs on my pectorals Shocked
Problem is, if they are all males, or all females, I will have nothing to compare L168 - butterfly plecos 484291715
Anyway, I got them a few days ago and not received as described, half the size in fact Mad
So maybe another year or so before I have babies, if at all Wink
