    I think you have a very pretty "Creamsicle" Midevil. She has a more streamlined build as compared to a male. It's probably still too early to positively ID gender.

    Okay, I’m alright with the Midevil I know most of them have some type of mixture. It took me forever to find this color and I wanted to get started looking for a mate the same color but if I’m not sure if I’m looking for male or female that doesn’t work lol

    One way or another you scored a very nice looking one. Unless you buy a wild caught Red Devil, most farm raised are part Midas. It probably won't take long to determine gender. If it starts biting your hand while cleaning the tank, likely male. Lol.
