    Re: Tilapias gender

    Not sure why you're not getting a response from the rest of the more intelligent ones. I'm new at all of this and my Tilapia's are smaller then yours. But from my limited knowledge that's a male, because they have two openings and the female only have one. At least that is what the guy that sold me my fish said.

    I'll tag your post, maybe we will get a conformation on Male or Female.

    Check out my main post "Pipe Siphon by Apollo" and "Fire Pit ... AP" to see my AP build.

    I am thinking it is a male as well, but would like someone more knowledgable than me to confirm. I had one of my breeder fish die today and it's privates look exactly the same as what you have pictured. I pulled up this publication and from the pic, think it is a male.

    Here is a link to the pdf that I got the pic from. Pretty good reading actually.
