It depends on where you are looking, I would guess. In the fancy imports, yes, you will find more males than females. The breeders tend to hold onto more females than males - and it is more difficult to squeeze a really nice female out of some of them.

For serious, local breeders, you will ALSO see fewer females being sold. Same reason as above.

I was shocked when the broadtail I had ordered turned out to be female!!!! She is the first I have managed to get, of reasonable breeding, in 2 years of looking.)

For general fish that are bred for resale, you should see about 50/50 I would guess. I have never read anything about imbalance in sexes or color/sex links or temp/sex links.....

I would very interested if anyone else has heard.
