Hi Guys,

I have been trying to breed fatheads just to observe them, to no avail. I used to assume two fish are females, but I'm no longer sure. Could you help me identify them?

I am aware that the males will have black head and color bands, but that is only during breeding, for males that are breeding. Underdevelped males are similair to females
