I have a male Firemouth cichlid and want to create a breeding pair. I bought another one (affectionately named Clo) but am not sure what sex it is. Can anybody tell me what gender you think Clo is? I think Clo may still be a juvenile. How old/large must firemouths be before they are sexually mature? I have had convicts breed the same size Clo is but I know they are the rabbits of the fish world. Clo is about 1 & 1/4 an inch. Here are some pictures her (hopefully :)). I know they are bad quality but I hope they will work! I took the fish out of the tank to take closer pics but then it's colors faded.

I took some more pictures. Some include the vent which may help. There are two of the same fish in several because of the reflection. How old do you think Clo is? I hope she is a female and will me sexually mature soon! I'm keeping her in another tank until she is a little larger (and older) before introducing her to my 5 inch male.
