There is only one sure fire way and that is to vent the fish.

When labs start to get black ventral fins and black face its called bearding. Means they are becoming the dominant male fish in the tank. Im not sure if the labidochromis female will beard if no male is present. The dark lines down the sides arent bearding. My lab male with stripe up (vertical) when hes spawning.

Some female labs will get black on there fins just like a male even if there are males in the tank or not.
