There's a joke in there somewhere 'bout the birds and the bees and the fishes in the seas, but other than guessing it's a girly gourami cuz there's no obvious boner, I can't help you.

Does that help?

Judging by the dorsal fin, I have $10 that says it's a female.

Females have a more round dorsal, while males have a pointier dorsal fin.

brokenlink.. i want 3 pearls and its best to have 1 male to 2 females for aggression reasons in the community tank.
Dood.. I agree with the dorsal fin, but it seems to have a long dorsal fin, didnt think females had such A long dorsal, also this gourami doesnt seem like it has A rounded belly as females do.

Some things are better let alone.

You ever visit fishforums.net? Post those pics there, see what some of the guys say. Now I'm not sure.

In these 2 pics it looks male, in the others it looks female.

Look at the first picture on this page. http://aqualandpetsplus.com/Gourami,%20Pearl%20More.htm The females fin is much shorter. I also checked my pair and the female is much shorter than that one.

Maybe it's a hermaphrodite fish!

It has the fin of a male, but the color of a female

He's fairly new to the aquarium, and he is the only pearl at the moment, if he is male, A female should make him want to bring out his colors

He's probably just young. When they get older they get the reddish color on their throat and the anal fin looks more raggedy.
