Hello! Is anyone able to tell me the sex of my new angelfish?
I’ve never had one before, I adopted this one as it was being bullied in its original tank. Everything’s going well, I’m just curious about if it’s a boy or a girl :) thanks!

Bit too small to tell and it is tough in adults but I think I'm quite good at it :)

The way I make a judgement is based on 2 things. Males have a more square profile between the mouth and the dorsal fin, females are more sloped (like this one - but it could change as it ages). The top of the ventral fins on males is also thicker and more pronounced where as the female is more uniform.
