Hey everyone quick question. Does anyone know how to tell if a Black Backed/ China Wrasse is a male or a female. Just picked one up from my LSF. I keep multiple wrasses, blue star, ornate leopard, and a ruby head thus far. All female still. But I can't find any way to sex my new friend.

Video below if it helps?

Your wrasse looks to be female in the video. @OrionN had one of his females transition to male, here's a link to one of his posts showing what the transition looks like.
