Female Pearl Gourami?

Hey guys!

I have had this Pearl gourami for about 6 months now and I'm still not sure it isn't a female. Can you'll help me out. Please take a look at the pictures, sorry they aren't that great, and tell me what you think.

Thanks Click image for larger version

Awesome! Thanks Coralbandit.

Anyone else have an opinion? I'd like multiple people agreeing that this is female before I head to the pet store to get her a man friend.

Thanks.

Looks like a female to me too. I suggest you look for a male which has a long dorsal fin and more orange coloration. This will mean he's in better health and getting ready for spawning.

Hope this helps
