Generally females will show more blue on the lower half of the gill plate where males will show very little/no blue on the lower half of the gill plate. Males also tend to have blue dots underneath and around the eye whereas females are more likely to have blue squiggles and patches as opposed to dots.chromedome52 said:That is a juvenile.

Female JD color extends more towards jaw line like a beard
