Male. Females have black on pelvic fins even when not in breeding colors, the male is not in breeding colors above. I breed German blue and gold rams. This link will tell you everything you need to know about german blue rams: http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/cichlid/germanblueram.php

Same link I posted. Question, zoea: I got the info I used to guesstimate from that link, and I thought that because of the fin rays and the dot coloration it was a female. Where did I make my mistake?

Because the fish he originally posted doesn't have black pelvic fins. Females do. So that one is male. It looks very close to my breeding male as well.

They do both appear to be male but I question the irridescent blue sheen on the black which can mean female but as happi said females have pink/orange/red bellies. I would have to say they are both males.
