    First two photos of one fish.
    Last two of another JD.

    I think they are female? Not sure, LFS said the 2nd one was 100% male.

    They look male and female to me but the 2nd one is hard to tell. The first two pictures, you can see that the dorsal fins end in points and the blue spots don't extend all the way down to the bottom of the cheek. The duller of the two, looks like blue dots extend to the bottom signify female, but i'm not sure.

    It's tough to see for the 3 and 4 picture. But the first one is a male.

    A female has the blue dots that go down past the cheeks...sort of like a bearded lady.

    The 2nd one has the beauty marks under the eye which I thought was a female trait, but LFS worker was so sure about it being a male. I’ll try to get another picture when I go back later

    This first one looks like a male. And the 2nd one looks HORRIBLY UNHEALTHY and really beat up!! And that is what is making it hard to sex.
