Hi all i'm new to the rainbow thing and have a simple question:

I have 12 3 inch boesmani's in a heavily planted 180g tank. About 4 of them are
not what the picture book boesemani are... ie they're not violet/orange bicolor.
Are these females? They are they same shape and finnage, and are sometimes slightly
bicolor (but not as intense) depending on mood, but usually they are a single base
color of a silvery light purple/blue with more orange towards the tail, etc but not
ass pronounced color as the others (which i guess are male)
