Flowerhorn Sex

Is it too early to tell if this is a male or female flowerhorn?

From what I've heard you have to wait for them to reach around 5-6 inches before you can tell what sex they are.

FH's are a hybrid with genetics dominated by Central American Cichlids. As with several varieties of CA female cichlids, gender often times can be determined by a dark blotch on the dorsal fin. Here's a pick of a female FH I once kept. Notice the small dark blotch on her dorsal.
