Determing sex of Spinger damsel

Does anyone know how to determine the sex of a springer damsel? I've been looking online and haven't had any luck.

I don't think you can. Usually, you can put two together and watch their behavior. Spawning behavior looks more friendly than same sex behavior. Sorry, that's not much to go on, but try out some pairs and you'll get an eye for it.

I had a feeling that'd be the case.

It's one of those fish where it is best to start with a group of juveniles and letting them figure it out themselves...
