This has been bothering me....how do you tell the difference between a male fish and a female fish? I've heard that one is darker and one is larger but don't remember which is which. And if you only have one how do you tell?

I was hoping there was a general rule but i guess now I don't feel so bad for not knowing :)

For now I was mostly curious about personifer, foxface and clownfish. We've only put a deposit down on our tank so the only fish i have a good picture of is the foxface.

Well I know clowns are what you say both sexes. There is only one queen ( the biggest) in the colony and if the queen perishes then the next male down the line will become the next queen female. So if you want to purchase a mating pair always know that the bigger one is the female and the smaller one is the male. As for the foxface, I am not sure about those but I'm be glad to learn along with you if someone answers your question about that one.
