Oh my gosh! You are so right! I completely forgot the males look like that!

Does that mean all of the ones that look like this are females? I see them everywhere, this was at Possession Fingers last summer

I've been watching this little mama for a few weeks now, i don't know what kind of fish, but every time i visit her, she's there fanning and guarding her clutch.
