Generally if they flash, they are male. Males have a long dorsal spine that comes off the dorsal fin. Also, wrasses change sex like clown fish, so if it is the only one in your tank, even if it isn't now, it will eventually be male.

I had gotten one from a friend but I think it died cause my hawk fish kept attacking him and he would burrow in the sand
