Hi

Besides checking for odontal growth along the pectoral and lower half of the body is there any other way to distinguish between male and female panaque maccus? For example, if I wanted to look at the sexual organs, what would be the distinguishing trait? Is there colouration differences or any other physical differences that would be apparent.

All help much appreciated.

Thanks

Hi alvin,

You may be able to sex them at an earlier age with the males having a longer head and a thinner and longer caudal peduncle, but this is not 100% foolproof.

Hi Alan

Thanks for the advice. I will give it a shot.
