Is there a trick to sexing Synodontis Multipunctatus?

Planet catfish states..."Males have a higher dorsal fin. Females are generally plumper and more rounded in profile. As with other Synodontis, in male fish it is possible to distinguish a 3-4 mm genital papilla near the anus."

I always tell people that if you see a pickle then it is a male and that a female has a taco... Of course I'm always thinking of food!!! :shock: :shock: :shock:

yeah i think M1 is pretty good at sexing these things, you have to poke and prod the "area" but suppossedly it should be obvious.
