    that is a pair for definite, second last pic clearly shows the females ovipositor, female left male right.
    the first ray of the dorsal should be larger in the males but through all the breedings it’s not as good an indicator of sexes anymore.

    Aye it’s just rooting them in sand is a pain. Thought we’d keep them like that for a bit while the fish settle.
