Lol guess it depends on some peoples description of young as I would say 3-4 months is young, most breeders/LFS won't even sell them till around that age anyways.

3-4 months is the normal around here. Because of the very short life span and early maturity I put "young" around 2.5 months, when they really start to develop.

I agree - male. Markings are so similar, but a males fins are much more prominent, particularly the dorsal. The first few rays of the dorsal fin of the male are longer than the rest and he's overall a bit bigger than the female. Check out this link. It might help.
