How do you tell the difference between male and female seahorses? I know that it is supposed to be easy, but i want to be sure I'm correct. Ill include pictures here:

Whoa! Slow down a bit. Maybe you should get them to eat before you try to breed them :lol:

I just want to know, that way i can actually name them without thinking "Woah... well what if it turns out to be a girl? Bob wouldn't be a good name..." :)
And they are eating!
Copepods! Finally!

Congrats on getting them to eat. That was quick.

Its difficult to tell from the pics but the first might be female.

Maybe this pic will help:

Mmmm... that's why there is gender neutral names... think "Taylor, or "Sam".

Sorry though, can't help you with gender identity.

EDIT: Look at that. Been ninja'd by bml. Hopefully that picture helps :p

Im sneaky like that.

EDIT: Here is a real pic to help you. Look at the shape right under their "belly". If its a sharp point like the fist, its female. If its a smooth shape to the tail, it's male.

Thank you guys!
I'm proud to say I have a male and a female, that dont seem to be mating! So thats good :)
And, finally they seem to be eating! It was almost a week of them refusing food, so I'm relieved!

How big are they? Males will not have a pouch when very tiny.
