I've formed somewhat of an obsession with these fish lately. I know they are live bears, so sexing won't be an issue, and I'm aware that most people consider them brackish fish but the text book I've been reading lately lists them as freshwater migrating into brackish water to breed. I want to breed them so I'll periodically give them brackish water, but my problem is telling if they are "left handed" or "right handed". I know I have to match up their mating styles to get them to breed (left to left or right to right) but how do you tell if they are lefties or righties? I'm assuming with the male just see what side he goes up to, but how on a female and how if they aren't trying to mate as you're watching them in the store?
