This oval shaped fish is a dwarf variety so it does not get overly large, making it an ideal resident for many different aquarium sizes. Typically the females will have a darker brown line which goes the length of the fish from the eye to the caudal fin, but this is not necessarily always visible in all specimens. The females also have a more pale yellow on their ventral fins, while the males tend to be orange. As with all fish, the males may have a different appearance when stressed and may be much more pale resembling the female.
