Bolivians don't get pink bellies unfortunately. Males have extended/red tail and dorsal fin rays as well as they have a sharper rear facing genitalia.
Females are duller in color with no extended rays in their fins and their genitalia are more rounded and downward facing

This the pair with female in the front just starting to begin courtship for another spawn


I currently have them in their own 20 g with a batch of new wigglers. Exciting

Great the pictures really helped thank you. I guess I'll have to wait until it grows out a little more to be sure.
