Red zebra boy or girl?

Ok so I have a 3-4" red zebra cichlid that I have had since he/she was under an inch and I wanted to know how you can tell if it is a boy or girl by just lookin at him/her. Here is a picture to make it easier

Red zebra females are blue so you have a male.

The blue one is a girl, and if the other one is a blue morph it is a boy but if it is a red morph you have to vent it

Can also use dorsal fin which isn't a great way to tell. But pointed means male. Rounded is female.
