    Can anyone tell me if this is a male or female?

    I would say male.
    If it was bought at a petsmart or Petco then it is most likely a male, as that is all they usually sell.

    I bought him/her at my LFS its privately owned. Just checking. I'm new to keeping these guys and from what I've researched males are the most colorful but have pointed dorsal fins and this ones seems to have rounded one. Just figured I'd get an extra opinion. Thank you.

    Male. Females have no color whatsoever. Just gray/silver-ish.

    I can only view the thumbnail and not the full picture (work filter), but that appears to be a good-looking fish :) Congrats!:sign0011:
