Found another three

Post by McEve »

After a 16 hours drive I now have another three members of the family.

I believe this to be a female:

This one I'm unsure of:

And this one would be the male:

What do you think?

They're all a minimum of 7cm, nr1 is the smallest at 7, nr 3 is the largest at 9cm.

Congrats with the new members McEve :D

I am unsure regarding gender.
Except for the male on pic 3 of course.

But my best guess is that number 2 is a female

IMO number 2 is a female and 3 a male.Now as for number 1 judging by the shape it looks like a male but the absence of long inopercular spines resembles a female.

How big are these fish?

Well done McEve, three beautiful specimens there :D . I would say that the top two are female and the bottom one a male. Well worth the 16 hour drive I would say :wink: .

What's the other two called then? :wink:

Thanks for looking at them Rob and Adam :D

Jo, look at the cheek odontodes, they're very long on the male, that's why it's easy enough to identify an adult male. It's the younger ones, and the difference between a subdominant male and a female that can be tricky....

Rob Adam and Des is usually spot on though!
