    Can someone who has seen the difference between the male and female gold sex links help me?
    I got these from Ideal Hatchery and one is so much lighter than the other I'm a little concerned.
    Are the males really white or are they yellow and turn white?
    (GSL at Ideal is RIR and RIW)

    I added a picture from the top. You can see some darker stripes. Is this a better sign it could be a girl?

    Unfortunately, in my experience that's a boy.

    I had a baby Gold Comet that could be the clone of yours, and for the longest time I prayed that he was a she like his sisters. Unfortunately by week 4 I had to bow to the reality that Goldilocks was in fact Goldbert.

    Here is a picture of him at approxamately a week.
