Really hard to tell, I'd say male based off what I could see in the dorsal and anal fins, but the coloring might suggest a female, really hard to tell with that size, coloring, and pinched fins. Try to get a clear photo with it's fins stretched.

Can you give us size and age of the fish? I'm thinking it is likely too small and too young for anyone to hazard an accurate guess as to sex. If not, and the fish is mature, it is a female, otherwise, anything else is a guess.
