Cannot see its whole body yet... but the tail seems like little thick... and it may be a female I guess... Did you try to use some flashlight to beam it and see if you can see any "saddle"?
this shrimp is a pain it does not like to come out so i can see it. and hides when i do spot it. the others in the tank love to be right out front
Blue bolts are hard to sex. I have some I swore where males that ended up getting berried, then some with huge bellies that are males...
I let mine berry and that is my only true tried with bb. I am good with most others but they are tricky.
my guess is female, let us know how it turns out
thanks all. when i find out i will let you know. i have a feeling it will be a while though. any one know how long it takes for tb to breed? these are young and i was kinda wondering how many months
Here is a picture for gender reference.

Male is on the left. Female on right.
The female is quite big for being berried for the 1st time.
