Is there any pointers as to how to tell the difference, when juveniles (5/6cms), between males and females of Protomelus Taiwan Reef?

If it's not possible at what size will it become obvious? :think:

Not by viewing them no. I can vent them at that size but I have been venting them for years. Venting is the only way at that size if you know what you are looking for.

I'll give that a miss! I was given two juveniles and one has certainly grown quicker than the other - might that suggest different sexes or just that one is getting more food than the other?

Could be either... females stay all silver, males may when they start to get a certain age start to get a little shimmer of colour to their bodies can you can just tell is more than just silver.
