generally the shape of the fin and body or color differences are used to tell. Some types are easy some are more of a challenge.

Dominate male labs will have a darker thicker bolder black stripe on the dorsal and will have more black on the pelvic fin. It might be kinda hard to find out if you only have one though, africans will really only color up to their full potential if there are females present
