Neon Velvet Damsel (Paraglyphidodon oxyodon), sexing   12/25/08 Hi, how do I tell the difference in sex of this species? <Mmm, as far as my ref.s and observations of the all-black adults in the wild recollection, the sexes cannot be discerned externally> I have two which look identical in markings, one over a year old, and the other smaller just acquired. Will they sex out like a clownfish? <Mmm... in a manner of speaking, yes...> they seem to get along fine. <Ah, good. This can be a very pugnacious, territorial species... in the wild, it vigorously defends its territory from all other algae eating animals, including conspecifics> Thanks,
<Welcome. Bob Fenner>
