Hoping someone could help me identify if my Jack Dempsey is a Male or a Female. The picture I am posting with his or her colors being bright is from 5 months ago when I first brought him/her home. The second picture is from 3 days ago. Colors are not as bright anymore but still has a little showing. Thanks for any help!!FullSizeRender (3).jpg FullSizeRender.jpg FullSizeRender (3).jpg

Females have what they call the blue beard. Males don't. Makes also have more spots.

I would say female. Males don't have all the blue round the mouth.
Ok. yes I see what you are talking about. She seemed to have lost all colors after I bought her, but I got a bigger tank about a month ago and just transferred all of my fish into it last night and I see what you mean. She has all color around her jaw line.
