I was just wondering what the average price for a medium sized GT is...varies from 4 to 6"...average condition.
I found a new fish store selling them for around $15 cdn.
Thanks.

Sounds about right to me. I have seen them for between $7 and $10 US.

OK goodie. I have a few more questions actually. Is the only way to tell between a male and a female...the hump on their head? Is this hump a sign of good health?...do all males have it? I was also wondering if females are more aggressive than males, and how to tell apart a female from a male...thanks!

Well from what I have gathered the males will most all have some sort of hump. It will grow as they mature. The males will also have elongated anal, caudal, and dorsal fins. The colored outline on the males will be very bright orange, while the female won't have as much color or length in the fins. Also, you know those iridescent blue lines on the face? The males will be brighter and more vivid.

I am not sure how well these color methods work on a single fish. They would likely be more accurated when using them on one fish in contrast with the colors of others.

But the hump on the head should give it away for you. The males will have it and the females won't. Giving the females head a sharper slope from the dorsal fin to the mouth.

Excellent. Are females more aggressive than males? Or only during breeding periods.
Thanks for your replies.

Hmm...I asked on other forum's and they said females can be just as aggressive as males, but grow a lot smaller...
this true?
