Male or female?

Recommended Posts

Can you guys please help me id the sex of this shrimp?

Boy, girl, or maybe young female?

Its smaller than the other females, but wont impregnate them unlike all of my other males (who are all ugly) they jump on my females immediatly.

Below are all pictures of the same shrimp.


In the 3rd picture you can see size comparison to another female. BTW i bought rhis one shrimp at AFA in SF. They get them from a local breeder. First time ive seen them carry high grade shrimp before.

You can't be so sure. All the females I've ever had at a young atlge look like males ubtill they get here first bberry. Then they fill out. This looks like a female to me for two reasons. The belly is more rounded. And the the back is more hunched. I thought I had a male BKK ubtill I seen it berries today
