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! :)

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

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!
