Far to small to sex visually, can you catch the fish and see the vent?

It's very easy to do, I will post a link with instructions and some pictures. Some central americans are easy to ID visually Thorichthys meeki are not one of them, people will always say look at the coloration or dorsal fin shape but that is not a definitive way to sex them. Just like trying to tell with people sometimes, look at their junk to be sure.
