Males usually have longer and pointed dorsal and anal fins. Males usually grow faster and larger than females. Females are usually paler in color and don't have the squiggle marks on their faces. These differences usually don't show up until they start to mature.

I hope that helps.

Thank you, I have gold severums with red marks on their faces, and would appreciate to receive graphical support for what you explained.. is that possible ?
