Aristochromis christyi maturity/venting size

smileyguy3000

My Primary question is - is 13cm DEFINITELY large enough to vent an Aristochromis christyi?

Second question - what do you think of the vent on the one photographed? It is 13cm and I do not think has spawned yet but it's in a tank of colourful larger all male haps and peacocks. I would have thought it looks definitely male but maybe it's not large enough to tell?

13cm is where it starts to be clear. The blue scales in the face are already a hint towards a young male and if it's not just glistening from the light the venting also says male. 75% sure.
