Male or Female ?

We all know how difficult it is to identify the sex of these fish, so please post a picture in here and we'll try to help you (or at least give an educated guess!).

Almost impossible to sex from a picture in an angle like that.
But if i have to make a guess it would be male, because of the big broad head.

Try a side shot, and one from above, and I'm sure you'll get an id on your fish :)
