Seems male, hit of color on top and in fins. Not the best looking specimen shapewise, but may still colour up.

That background looks almost real in the photo.

Suppose he is good, his head/eye looks a little different, maybe just individual difference.

The background does have the illusion in the photo, maybe not as much in person. Great match for Malawi thou.
