I am in no hurry to have them color up, just as long as they eventually do. I wanted to make sure that i actually had a male in the group of four. I took some pictures... would that help you guys determine male or female?

Yep. Like Kegger said. The venustus will keep the champs from coloring up. Champs are pretty mild fish.

I would have to say if the Nimbo is larger it will take some time for any male champ to color up, if you can move the Venustus out for awhile a champ may start coloring up for ya

hhmm... the dominant male of the tank is my Nimbochromis venustus... would there be a dominant male of the Champs though or would the male "if any" just be a sub dominant? All 4 of the Fish look identical minus that the one has 4 egg spots.

They should start coloring up at this point. Sub dominant males can be really hard to tell at this point though and generally show no color until they get a  little larger.

I have a confession. I'm a cichlaholic.

Egg spots have really nothing to do with whether the fish is male or female. Its more of a myth in my personal opinion.

It's easy. Males have lots or color. Females are plain silver.
