Freshwater Aquarium/tetra glofish

Question
I have 5 tetra glofish I would like to know how to tell the sex of them I have one of each color
Thank you

Answer
Melinda

Glofish have a blue stripe running across the side of the body, and they have a secondary color that determines the sex. Under the light, if the Glofish has golden stripes, the sex is a male. If the secondary line is silver, the sex is a female.

Hope this helps,

Expertise

I own and maintain several freshwater aquariums from 2 to 180 gallon. I can answer most questions about freshwater aquariums, including setup, cycling, maintenance, compatible tank mates, feeding. Moving? I've moved fish both across town and across the country and can help you get your little aquatic friends to their new home safely. I know and have experience with most freshwater community fish, South American Cichlids and African Cichlids. I don't answer questions about Goldfish or keeping Goldfish with Tropical Fish. I also don't answer questions about keeping crustaceans (shrimp, snails, crabs etc) with Tropical Fish, nor questions about saltwater fish or aquariums. I'm not available to answer questions on weekends, this is when I do maintenance on my own tanks.

Experience

Many years of personal experience with community tank fish, semi-aggressive fish (Barbs, Tetras, etc), Angels, South American Cichlids and African Cichlids.
