Looks like a female to me. I'm no expert, but I'm on my second mated pair and your jag looks just like my past and present female. Can you get more of a side picture of your jag?

I think it's a female. It looks very much like my female, the same bodyshape, the same line of spots and so on... But then again, I could be wrong...

Anyway, here are some things that I've noticed in the very short time that I've had my jags...

1. Males have spots on all their fins, females also has spots but they are much lighter in colour. The males also has a tint of blue at the very end of their fins.

2. Females has a plumper bodyshape, males are slender.

3. Males has a lot of spots on their belly and the lower part of their face. In fact they have spots pretty much all over their body.

4. Males usually rule the tank and pretty much harass the females all day long...

5. Females has a very dark line of spots down their lateral spine, males has those spots too but they break up i a bunch of other spots all over their body.

Some pictures:

Man getting confused with the new forum but your Jag is a female well should be anyways Ive heard of females looking like males but never a male looking like a female. Females keep the big middle bloches males dont the turn to small spot females bottom spot stay light in color male stay dark the blue color on the ends of the tail is apparent in male and female. Most jags get very aggressive males more so then females except for some rare occasions besides mating. Ide bet a hundred dollars that its a female. So hope this helps.
