I'm terrible with photos, but if you can enlarge my avatar photo it might help. This is my pair of breeding koi angels - male on the left. I think it helps to have them side by side, and in this photo you can see the "hook" or jagged edge on the ventral fins of the male, while the females are smooth . Not always reliable, but in the absence of a breeding tube I think it's helpful.

It's probably too small to determine the sex, and even when they're adults I find it's still very hard to tell them apart unless you have a mated pair that is breeding. If you have any more questions I'm sure @bizaliz3 can help you out.
