You generally don't. It takes someone who knows what they're looking at, and even then sometimes it's off.

Why would you like to know?

Angels are nearly impossible to sex, you just have to wait until they get older and hopefully pair up. If that happens you can observe the behavior as a final deciding factor on the sex. But this is not always 100% accurate

As mentioned, it takes a trained eye but fear not, I've yet to see a fish complain about the name it is called
