Sexing some species is very difficult, but yet very important.....

Not sure if you've ever tried to vent a fish, but it seems the most precise and accurate way.

Here is a GREAT link describing the process of:

Venting

BOARD: this might be a good meeting topic, having someone attend a meet to discuss and show the members how to properly vent a fish (definetly a promoting the hobby topic). There are far too many people selling fish that truly guess at the sex. When you are spending big dollars looking for a breeding pair, a breeding colony or you just want fish that will get along and live in harmony - you need to know for sure the sex.
