Default Sexing Frontosa - male or female

Hi all,

I was wondering what are the defining aspects of defining the Frontosa? This includes the entire Cyphotalipia species for those getting fussy.

Can everyone respond with whether it can be determined by behaviour, size, colouration, hump on head, finnage (if that is a word) and anything else.


Cheers,
Glenn

C. Frontosa and C. Gibberosa are easily sexable by visual ly venting them.

OK I am a novice then, what is venting and how do you do it? Is there anyone that could point me in right direction?
