Oh looks like I didn't post it on this one, but flaring isn't a great indicator either. Girls and boys flare nearly the same, one of my females has a great looking beard as well!

EDIT: ^ was just for a future reference :)

Not an ovipositor. It is his cloacae.

No, it's an ovipositor. The ovipositor is the white thing that protrudes from the fish's cloaca.
