Just got a pair of peppermints and l333 I am sceptical about the sex of the "female" pepp. No I have read that pepp females can have a few bristles which some of mine do but this one has a couple of little bristles going up the centre of the nose. So how bristley can a female pepp be?

If she was the dominant female in a tank with a few then it seems they can get quite bristley...I'd be looking at body shape...maybe a pic from top or bottom to help Smile
