The sexes can be easily determined by observing the dorsal fins: in females it will be very small and subtle, but in males it will be exceptionally impressive when in full display. Like a huge, vibrant sail, the male’s dorsal fin is adorned with dramatic stripes and eye spots. They use this dorsal fin to attract potential female mates and to intimidate competing males.  In aquariums males can be observed extending their dorsal fin in dramatic courtship displays to their female interests for an hour or so before the lights go out. This species can be kept singly, in male/female pairs or a single male with a harem of females.
