What do you think about this one? 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!).

It's close to 3", I'm not sure on the age the LFS got it from a wholesaler. It doesn't look that old, maybe a few yrs. It's been in my tank about 2 months now and doing very well.

I would have guessed fm, but I am awful at sexing. :p

She is missing all the hairy bits you normally see on the males?
What makes the common person uncommon is common sense.
