Based on the photos, I'd guess female, but can't be 100% @ that size.


Males get more of a deep red than females, longer dorsal & anal fins, & will be slightly larger/bulkier of females of the same age.

Male:



Female:

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.
