View Full Version : Confused Male Mandarin

I think my male (see pic) is confused. He does his spawning swim when my firefish comes to the front at dinner time. He follows it around and they hang out during the day. I think I need to get him a girlfriend and try and raise some little mandys. I am already raising clownfish fry so I am set up with live foods. I just want to make sure I have a male. Do females have a dorsal spine or just a rounded dorsal fin? I don't want world war 3 going on in my living room lol. https://flic.kr/p/UEDfKP

Males have long dorsal fin females have rounded dorsal fin.
Females can reject a male that is not large enough for her.
