Help sexing Bolivian ram

I know these pictures aren't the best, but does anyone have thoughts on the sex of this guy (gal)? I have noticed that two of his (her) black dorsal fin spikes are longer than the others, but I'd love some feedback.

Almost positive this is a female. I need someone to confirm but that's my conclusive statement.

Well then, it's a good thing we went with a gender neutral name (Geist). I'd love for someone else to jump and confirm because I'm working with a breeder to find a suitable mate for this lovely young lady.

Thank you, Fishanatic!

No problem. Just saying, you could try and check pictures to confirm it you're self, for a double approval.
