Do I have a male or female Pearl Gourami?

Hi everyone! I was wondering if anyone can tell me if I have a male or a female Pearl Gourami here? (My apologies for the picture...this guy is really hard to get a picture of, because he/she is super super shy and is constantly hiding.) I just purchased this fish, and I would like to have 3 Pearl Gouramis (1 male and 2 female), so I need to know what sex this little one is before adding companions. Thanks for your help! :)

Ok, that didn't work out so well. Let me try adding the picture again. I must be doing this incorrectly...sorry.

I'd say female based on the shape of the anal fin. Could be an immature male though. How big?

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom

Yes-the top fin does appear to be rounded, and the bottom fin does point straight down. Does this mean I have a female?

Thanks!

This fish is about 2.75 inches long.
