Thanks in advance. I have 2 jack Dempsey’s and from why I have read tail fins look like females, but fin markings look like male.

I would say youve got yourself a male demp there a well fed and stress free male from the looks of it I say male because of the lack of blue coloration under the gill plate the profile is a bit misleading but fins appear to indicate male as well the only female trait i would say is the more rounded body shape males are usually longer more streamline and lack the "hump" leading up to the dorsal fin20200529_222007(1).jpgthis is my young male for comparison

This is both male and Fem the lower one is my Fem for comparison the blue "beard" is the best indicator of a female dempsey which your dempsey lack another feature that suggests male20200530_041334.jpg
