 Hi  all,
                   I  have  2  Etroplus  Canarensis  with  me.  I  have  noticed  that  one  of  them  has  a  single  black  or  dark  brown  spot  at  the  end  of  its  top  dorasl  fin  which  is  the  rear  side  near  the  tail  fin.  I  was  wonderind  that  is  this  a  possible  way  to  sex  the  Etroplus  Canarensis  or  just  something  else.  These  fish  are  about  2.5  inches  in  size.
 
 Thank  You
 Nikhil  Sood

 The  only  reliable  way  to  sex  them  is  to  vent  adult  fish...mature  females  also  have  white  edges  to  their  caudal  fins,  a  la  E.  maculatus

 Where  is  that  Adipa  when  you  need  him!  
 
 The  sure  way  to  sex  E.canarensis  is  to  check  the  position  of  the  vent.  In  Females  the  vent  is  closer  to  the  anal  opening  than  in  the  males.
 
 I  am  not  wrong,  I  am  sure  but  still  need  to  double  check  with  Adip  as  I  have  not  physically  checked  the  position  of  the  vents  in  the  E.canarensis.

 Thats  the  best  way  to  sex  them  atleast  so  far!
 Havent  been  able  to  take  a  pic  of  that  yet!
 
 
         By  the  way  do  you  guys  know  that  the  Canarensis  can  act  like  a  doctor  fish!  Its  does  a  fantastic  job  of  eating  away  all  the  rotten  slime  of  a  sick  fish.  It  does  wonders,  guess  some  of  you  should  try  this  out!  You  wont  believe  that  its  done  so  neatly  that  the  sick  fish  actually  stays  in  a  place  waiting  for  the  Canarensis  to  clean  it!
 
 Regards
 Adip

 WOW!
 I've  read  about  E.maculatus  cleaning  E.suratensis  this  way.    But  never  thought  E.canarensis  will  do  it.    Thanks  for  the  update  Adipa.    Now  i  get  why  these  guys  were  pecking  on  our  legs  in  Subramanya.    Idea
