Help Sexing Pearl Gourami

JessieBird

Hi Everyone!

Ive been keeping fish for many years now but never had any Gourami. I purchased a young Pearl Gourmai yesterday and the dorsal fin is throwing me off! It wasn’t sexed in store and I forgot to ask. I’ve done so much searching but as I said that dorsal fin is confusing me.

So male or female?

It’s a male just beginning to grow filaments on its dorsal and analfins.

A male indeed

I'll make it three votes for male. As he gets more comfortable in your tank and gets a little older he should color up nicely.

Thank you everyone! I was leaning towards male
