Default venting

Please help me vent this Tropheus Duboisi maswa. All the pictures are of the same fish. Around 5''. Mastiffman has weighed in already thinking female. This fish is fairly calm from what I have noticed.

Yep. With the smaller eggs they lay than other Tropheus, their vents don't get as blown out as other females.

Any chance for a pic of a male to see the diff?

Its funny, My LFS says "its a male for sure we checked". So I vented when I got home and thought female right away, but I am no expert, so I am glad I came here for input from you guys. Thanks! I will still post pics of the male, but I need help and my side kick (wife) isn't home at the moment, so tomorrow for sure.

Now Im confused, looks the same to me. The fish pictured is the most territorial fish I have ever had. Owns my 250 straight out. Very large pelvic fins, not sure why. Beautiful no doubt about it. Let me know what you guys think.
