Well.....I used to keep Dwarf Gouramis, and the fellas are silver to gray color. You will definitely be able to tell the males from the females because of their bright color. :)

All the young are silver until they mature, at which time the males start to show some colour.

Under ideal conditions they are sexually mature at 3 months old and you can identify males and females then. However, if they aren't grown under ideal conditions, it can take 6-8 months or more before they mature sexually and show colour differences.

Keep the water warm (28C).
Do big regular water changes.
Feed them good quality food at least 3 times a day and they should grow pretty quickly. :)
