From: Jack Dempsey Cichlid Profile
Sexing the dempsey is rather simple. Males will be larger and have longer more pointed fins with very little blue on the gill cover if any and will be in dots if its present whereas the female will have splotchs on her gill cover and have less color throughout the body. The female also tends to be more "squat" in shape.
here are some pics that might help.
