 Discus  are  very  hard  to  sex  visually.  The  best  way  is  to  buy  a  group  and  let  them  pair  up.

 Hello
 
 The  identification  is  very  simple.  It  also  requires  patience  and  observation  .
 Please  follow  the  below  mentioned  steps.
 
 Step  One:-  Make  sure  the  lights  are  on  .
 Step  two:-    Look  carefully  at  your  Discus.
 Step  three:-  The  once  that  are  looking  at  their  reflection  constantly  are  females.  The  others  looking  at  these  females  looking  at  their  reflection  are  males.
 
   ROFL  
 
 Just  kidding.
 
 If  you  find  out  the  technique  please  do  let  me  know.
 
 regards
 
 Niranjan

 Hi  ppl,
 
 I  had  asked  you,  how  to  identify  those;  but  u  ppl  made  jokes  of  tht  one..
 Whereas  you  dont  know  about  it  either...
 
 I  have  come  up  with  the  answer  so  check  it  out...
 
 Just  check  at  the  genitals  of  your  Discus..  Male  Discus  has  short  genitals  than  a  Female  Discus..  You  need  to  look  at  those  minutely...
 
 Kindly,  keep  in  mind;  dont  laugh  at  anyone  when  you  don't  know  the  answer  yourself...

 Hi  Sidd,
 Don't  take  it  so  bad!  I'm  sure  none  of  them  are  trying  to  put  you  down  for  your  question.
 Sexing  a  discus  is  still  a  mystery  to  most  of  us  so  it's  an  unanswered  question.  Venting  though  a  reliable  way  to  sex  them,  is  something  that  most  of  us  are  still  queasy  about  since  handling  them  would  stress  them  out!
 Why  don't  you  post  your  question  in  the  Meet  the  Expert:  Roy  Khoo  thread  so  that  you  can  get  it  answered  by  somebody  who  breeds  them  in  plenty.

 Hello  Sidd,
 
 discriminating  between  a  male  and  female  is  really  a  difficult  task  until  you  see  them  while  spawning.  There  are  a  few  indicators  like:
 
 Males  are  generally  bigger  and  stouter  than  the  females
 
 Dorsal  fin  of  males  are  generally  sharp  at  the  edge  while  it  is  rounded  for  females.
 
 Males  dominate  more  than  females.
 
 All  these  are  very  vague  measures.  One  can  tell  correctly  only  when  they  spawn.  As  Beta  stated,  you  can  put  this  question  on  the  meet  the  expert  thread  and  get  the  info  from  the  pro.

 Siddharta,  the  only  time  you  can  make  this  out  is  when  the  fish  are  spawning,  which  sort  of  negates  the  purpose  of  sexing  them.  Venting  non-breeding  discus  is  not  very  easy,  especially  for  a  beginner.

 I'd  leave  it  to  the  other  fish  in  the  tank  to  decide  if  the  selected  specimen  is  a  male  or  a  female..  they  hardly  ever  commit  mistakes!!

 Garothmaan,  no  offence,  but  please  do  start  your  own  thread,  esp  when  it  comes  to  ooooolllllllddddd  threads,  please  dont  dig  up  old  threads  and  post!
 
 If  you  are  really  interested  in  the  sexual  dimorphism  of  dicus,  not  a  thing  has  changed  with  the  advancement  of  science.  You  still  have  to  go  by  the  old  methods  of  waiting  and  watching!

 Admin...!
 
 Is  there  a  rule  for  owning  threads  ?  
 
 I  believe  when  a  thread  is  already  there,  then  its  the  best  place  to  ask  questions  in  that  thread,  rather  than  starting  a  new  1.
 
 And  NYTN!  WHAT!,  whats  with  you  anyway  the  board  rules  already  are  saying  it  for  COL?  If  you  have  a  good  reason  to  write,  please  do...
 
 Calling  all  gurus,  is  there  realy  no  scientific  method?

 Garothmaan,  you  can  vent  sexually  mature  fish  as  mentioned  above,  but  it  takes  a  lot  of  practice  to  make  out  which  is  which.  This  is  probably  the  most  "scientific"  non-invasive  method  of  sexing  fish.
