    it has the colors of both LOL
    males have the reddish noses and a red line through their dorsal fins...I dont see a red nose but do see the red line in the dorsal ...

    I think because the nose is reddish to orange and its not that rounded as a female would be.

    I see the red line clearly when i blow it up. the nose is also just getting that red color(normally ive seen it with much more) but id defiantly say male.
