I would say at that price they are young maybe 1" / I think you can sex approx. at 2 years of age.

I am horrible at sexing fish, even zebras. I usually rely on behavioral clues once they are sexually mature or close thereto. The other way I can sex them is to move them to a photographing tan with a bit cooler water and then shoot pic of them, esp from the bottom. This usually give me a view where I can see the sex organs. But I have to DL the pics to my PC and look at them enlarged.
What makes the common person uncommon is common sense.
