Here is my big guy... any thoughts? Fin shape made me think male but I really don't know.

I haven't kept them, but everything I've read here says that dwarf gouramis are sexed by color more than fin shape, with females being a drab grayish color and rarely available in stores in the US. Considering all that, I think it's pretty safe to say you're right and yours is a male.

Powder Blue are the exception to that being similar coloured to the males however I agree that it’s a male. Fin shape/size as well as the strong looking red colouration on the caudal and analfins.
