Looks like a female to me! I got a pair from Petland as well, mine are in breeding colors, the male is much more blue and has no black on the little fins at the front .

My female is overall less colorful with more black/brown. The small fins at the front are black as is her face(to attract fry). I'm trying to get mine to breed, have not had much success....Here are some pictures:http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160216/a017552e5c01ae6a60f487a25a308abc.jpghttp://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160216/5806db0a5064b52c0f3854b22210c897.jpghttp://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160216/bce12ea61d7060a1f6d553cd74ded3f9.jpghttp://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20160216/30b32b7f8797f696aaf7ac2ed253615d.jpg

I can't see Jay's pic but a female in breeding color will be a very bright yellow, otherwise the females have no color to them compared to the male. Tropical's female doesn't appear to be in breeding colors to me.

Interesting, that may be my problem! I thought she was pretty yellow, but these are my first apistos...

She does turn her belly at the male, but the male shows little to no interest to her.
