Can anyone tell if this is a male or female Angelfish

That looks to be a male. The way to determine this is by looking at the body structure of your angelfish. Males have rounder, less angular bodies than females, and have a slight hump on their head. You can look from the nose to the tip of the dorsal fin and determine the gender. If it’s flat all the way along then it’s a female. Yours has a hump so it must be a male. This method is easier to do with mature angelfish.

I don't think that always holds true, I have a female with a very similar head to that. To know for sure you need to see it in the act of spawning.

No, no one can tell if that's a male or a female. It's too young to even guess, and even when it puts on some size, a guess is about all you can hope for.

Well its a 50 - 50 shot, maybe male maybe female.

Only TRUE way of telling is when you can see the breeding tube.
