Chrysiptera cyanea-The Blue Devil.

Devils,blue(C.cyanea) and Fiji (C.taupou)share a very agressive nature and sexual dichromatism,which changes with geographical origin.This makes picking a male and a female easy yet making them get along is another story.
I have a pair of the phillippine morph of the blue devil,where the male has a dark blue caudal fin,and the female´s is clear.After some struggle,they finally settled and began spawning.
Newly hatched larvae look like other damsel larvae,see the yolk sac:

Hi Luis,

I'd like to know more about how their sex is determined from a developmental perspective. If you have any information you could share that would be great. For instance, are these fish hermaphroditic? Also, did the male have an orange tail? What was the sexual organization involved with this spawning?
