Juvie opaline gourami male or female?

I got a new fish. It is about 1.5 inches without the tail. Boy or girl?

No this is a different fish. Okay then it is 2 inches with the tail.

Should I try and get a better picture?

I snapped this today at the LFS. They're about 2 inches and were easily sexed, especially since there were males and females so the difference was more pronounced. I think looking at a single fish by itself can sometimes make it more challenging.

This one appears to be a female as well.

The fish in the upper left corner is a male - you can see how the dorsal fin extends further back.

The fish in the first photo appears to be a female. If you condition her up on frozen blood worms and other high protein foods for a week her chest will start to swell with eggs.

Really? Even though she's just a baby?

EDIT: Oh that is actually the same fish in all the pictures.
