    check which one has the head ache every night,

    with clowns it is usually the bigger more dominant one is the female, I think with shrimp, they swop sex after every batch of eggs, something like that, other fish, got no idea, tagging along.

    Some fish show no sexual dimorphism, meaning that attempting to identify their gender is a moot point. Learn about using a handbook to identify the differences in gender in different types of fish
