Ooo nice you don’t see many chocs and they are a lovely fish. I would say this one is Male as it has very pointed dorsal and anal fins. When they get bigger it’s easier though as males get a very square head where as females stay sloped

yeah i thought it was a female because of the rounded tail, but yes it needs to grow up

Most heroine type cichlids have paddle tails so don’t get the extensions on either gender like a geophagus for example

Still think it’s a boy the head is squaring off and the fin extensions are getting longer. Stunning fish tanks looking good too!
