How do you tell the difference between a male and a female fish?

I want to know how to determine the difference between the genders.

Depends on the fish species....often female is larger.

Like the second comment, the female is more plain and dull looking; whereas the male is usually colorful and prettier. (:

What type of fish?

Most fish, the males and females look pretty similar. But sometimes, like with a betta fish, the males are usually more ornate/colorful. Sometimes males are bigger, but most of the time males and females are the same size. Some types of fish, the only difference is fin shape.

You can tell male & female fish apart easy. Most of the time the male fish has a very long & pointy dorsal fin & long and pointy anal fin.. Females have more rounded anal & dorsal fins.

If the tails longer, it's a boy and the shorter the tall, then it's a girl

It depends but in most case, males are more fancier and colorful but females are dull color

for example betta fish male:long fin+colorful ( but one type of betta male is short fin) female: has color but usually only 1 color and and small with short fins.
