I want to say male, but I'm not 100% certain. The dorsal fins are pointed and it looks like it's starting to develop a kok.

Looks female, from the breeding tube base and general shape. It’s a well fed fish which explains the head height. But again not 100%.

Has your fish always had those two salt grain size spots on its tail or is that an unfortunate placement of particles in the water/on the glass?

Beautiful fish!

It had a hurt tail fin when I first got it and it just grew back with the two dots on it and it has had them ever since. Its not ich if that's what you are worried about.
