shes quite large, about 3inches. I believe its a female due to her not having any color, this is my first peacock tank and im trying the all male method.
Imgur
If it is a female, why does she have so many eggspots? I thought females could only get 1 or 2

Egg spots don't necessarily mean it's a male or female. He/She could very well be a sub dominate male that has lost all color due to rank in the tank ect..

Late to the party but the coloration is either that of a female or low ranking male. If you could snap a few clear pics with a side profile I'd be better able to tell. Egg spots are not a good way to sex African cichlids btw. Also, females can easily reach the 3-4in length depending on species/strain.
