Another Bolivian Ram?

No problem. It's not that easy to distinguish the gender of Bolivians. I was lucky picking males by selecting the more intensely colored, most aggressive rams. It seems the males had streamers on the tail fins. The dorsal fin of the males also tend to be more pointed than the females.
It's been quite a while since I kept Bolivians, but I remember them to be great fish. Much tougher than their cousin, the German Blue Ram.

Can’t I just look at the breeding tube? That is how others sexed my bolivian ram bought a few days ago.

That is one part of this hobby that I'm absolutely terrible at doing. Lol.

Mature Bolivians are easy to sex. Look at the analfin. On males it’s long and pointed and reaches just past the caudal peduncle and into the tail fin. On females it’s short and rounded and stops well before the tail.
