This is my first time owning one of these & I'm not sure if it's a male or female. So cichlid lovers, which do you think it is? Don't ask me about the male Pearl that's in with it. I don't think it's a good idea but it's the missuses tank & she wants to go with the "try it & see" option. I'm prepeared to rehome the Pearl if it doesn't work for her. PS: Sorry about the low quality pics. Cheap camera until I can afford a new one. EDIT: I just convinced the missus to let me take the Pearl out of the tank. So it's out & on it's way to a mates tank now.
