My male has a pure white stripe, so did the male before it LOL!!That's a male. I think what smalls meant was that the pics were a little dark and a little bit blurry. Thankfully, it's clear enough to sex, and I think he, and all the others, are correct.
So I have a question. I've read that metallica are difficult or impossible to sex dorsally, yet I always see that females develop a white abdomen stripe, while males have that darkish messy stripe down the middle of it. Is this right, or is it not as clear cut as I think?
