Got lucky with the camera on this one. Any guesses as to the sexes? JC is darker, Morgan lighter.

They may be too young to sex. However, if I were to make a guess, the top one (is that JC?) may be a young male just starting to develop pouch and keel, where the bottom one appears more round like a female.

They're gorgeous! Where did you get them from?

It's all about the snick!

That is what I thought--I have been thinking that I have seen the beginnings of a pouch on JC. Thank you! I got them 6-7 months ago online, from Seahorse Ranch.
