Females have a pink belly. Males do not. That's who I sex my german rams, I would like it's the same for bolivians

Bolivians don't get pink bellies unfortunately. Males have extended/red tail and dorsal fin rays as well as they have a sharper rear facing genitalia.
Females are duller in color with no extended rays in their fins and their genitalia are more rounded and downward facing

Great the pictures really helped thank you. I guess I'll have to wait until it grows out a little more to be sure.
