Is this juvi old enough for a guess yet?

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!).

He/she is a little over 2 in. I bought him/her 7 months ago with my 2 wild caughts and 4 f1. He/she was the biggest f1 out of the four when I purchased them. I don't think this one came from the same batch bc he/she was always bigger than my other 3 but that's just what I think.

It sure looks like a female, but i cant really tell when its that small.
Let it grow a cm more and take a picture then.

Your fish should hit the 2,5 inch mark in about 6 months, it should be shurely sexable then.
For now i would lean towards a female :)
