Bolivian Ram Female?

strobukm

I have a single Bolivian Ram living with a variety of small fish (pygmy corys, sparkling gouramis, ember tetras) in a 72 gallon tank. I'd like to get another one, but I'd like to confirm that she's actually a she. I reviewed the sticky on sexing Bolivian Rams, but for some reason the photos didn't show up, so it was hard to follow. Here are a few photos of my fish. Thanks for the help!

Sure looks like a female to me, I have one myself who looks exactly the same. But let’s wait for a real expert to confirm this.

My wife says definitely a female.
Adding more fish to her tank may take some adjustment on her part.
In an idea world you would add 6 and wait for a pair to bond before removing 4. If you don’t intend to breed her adding others may work out OK , in a 75 anyway?

I believe that’s an eggs tube showing?
Also the tail is female as there are no extensions. However a young fish has no extensions and they are the first thing nipped off in an overcrowded shop tank.
Actually even in my 55 the least dominant males have these extensions nipped off regularly.
