very simple! If they are mature. the female will almost always have red/orange on her blly and lower sides, with color on her fins gills top fins bottom fins. shine a light on them to see if there is any color.Males will have a hump on their head, usually no color, longer strings from the upper and lower fins, and almost always bigger and bulkier looking. Do you have pics?
