Hi folks,
Can anyone tell me if this Bolivian Ram is a male or female?

I'm thinking female at the moment but has anyone more experience and can be sure?

Thanks in advance! Smile

I too think that it is a female because of the rounded dorsal fin.

See this article: Lee Newman. Keeping and Breeding the Bolivian Ram, Microgeophagus altispinosa (Haseman, 1911). In the 3rd pic it is clear the difference in the dorsal fin of the fishes.
