if they are more colorful, then they can be a male. also the dorsal fins of a male is longer and sharper at the edges while the females are shorter and rounder.

He don't seem to have very much color but I just kinda of figured that up to stress with being moved from the lfs to my 55. But who knows. He didn't seem to have much color at the lfs but I again figured that was due to the stress of being transported and try to adjust to a new place. I guess ill give it a few more days to see if he colors up. If not I guess I could just go off the fins. Are they fairly easy to breed?

they are somewhat. I haven't tried myself but as far as what I have read from my research about them, it is farely simple. here's a link of some info about them, about how to sex them, how to breed them: Three spot gourami - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Did you find out the sexes? I have 2 gouramis and I've been trying to figure out the sexes as well. I was told that the males fins comes to a point and that the females fins are more rounded. If thats true both mine are females
