Rojo is a very nice looking female. You're doing a good job keeping her.

You think it's a girl eh?

Alot of the times there are no bars and no black in the dorsal and other times it's like in the picture. Or if it's being aggro to me it goes super dark bars and all black dorsal.

I kinda been thinking a boy. But I guess time will tell.

All the female Festae I've kept had the black coloration in the Dorsal fin. The males all were a gold & olive green color. It's been a while since I've kept Red Terrors, but here is a pic of my best female.

Do all females color up even if no male is present or no other fish?

Females stay alot smaller, dang I kind of wanted a boy. Oh well I'm sure Rojo will be a stunner either way.

The female Festae can color up without a male being present. My pictured dominant female stayed colored up a lot, but the other females in the tank always remained brown.
Your Red Terror has a good high bodied, thick build. I'm sure it will be an awsome fish.

Seems like your probably right. I am thinking Rojo is actually female now too.

Yeah I know, time seems to fly by. She has been doing really well. Awesome personable fish!

Her colors are developing nicely too considering she is kept solo. Her size is a solid 6" which I believe to be fairly normal for a fish of this age.

Maybe 10-11" in another year?
