i think, for males, if you look at the tail the pink part will extend like swords and the back end of dorsal fin will be more pointy when raised...I may be wrong but this is what I have researched and found when I was trying to sex mine...females dorsal I think is more rounded and the tail doesn't extend with the sword like extensions.....hope that helped...youtube it....here is a video where I got my info....
