CLOWN SEX

Sorry, this isn't a porno site for carnival lovers! I was wondering if anyone out there knows how to sex Clown Loaches. I found on one site a posting of how you could tell be the shape of the tailfin, but I read the entry about six times, as did my wife, and we could not figure out exactly what the guy was claiming as the difference in tail-shapes. I have also read on other sites it is impossible to tell the difference. I have only run across one site article RE Clowns breeding in captivity. Anyone out there have luck with this? Just wondering-I have had my Clowns for a long time now, and spent a lot of time learning how to keep them fat and healthy, much of the info coming from sites like this one. Sexing is one of the few facts I cannot seem to find a clear opinion on. GREG
