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. :oops:

Well, I never could figure out how to post the attachment. :oops: But, here is a link to the picture:

thats sure does look like a female. does she have a rounded top fin and a striaght down bottom fin?

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!

This fish is about 2.75 inches long.
