Blue German Ram Gender

AsianPersuasion

Hello I was wondering if someone could help me determine the gender of my German Blue Ram. I’ve done some research on how to determine it but I’d like to check with you guys and see your opinions. I’m looking to get it a mate and that’s why I’d like to know it’s gender and any pointers you could give me on determining genders of German Blue Rams would be much appreciated.

Looks like a male in the first picture, second picture looks like it has a slight pink belly so hard to tell. But I would say 90% male as no dots on his black spot.

Alright thanks a lot I’ll wait and see what others say.

Rounder body, even length(height) on the top fin, and definitely see some pink in the belly. I would bet that is a female ram

What I usually look at is the Dorsal fin is longer and more pointy in the back and no sparkles on the black spots. Are those good tells, or are they not always the same?

They are all good tells but sometimes you need to add them all up .
Often the dorsal can be damaged and sometimes males will have blue around or just infringing on the black spot .
The pink belly which is usually very noticeable is also a good tell .

So we think it’s a male?
