Hi somosuno,

The species you're getting will determine whether you can easily tell a male from a female. The external differences are so slight with a bimac that it's almost impossible to tell. Also, if you have a young octo, it may be difficult to tell which sex. And none of them hold still for observation.

This has been discussed several times over in the Physiology and Biology Forum. Here's one link:
