So are there any visual differences between males and females of this variety?

I bought a ~3.5" male about 1 1/2 weeks ago. Last week a pulled him out and took a quick look at the underside and the fish appeared to be female. It has been about a year since i vented a fish and i didnt have my 30x magnifier so there is a good chance i didnt sex this fish correctly.

I'm going to look again today for my 30x and vent this fish for real but until then I was wondering are there any clear differences (visually) between the males and the females?

Can't tell by their colors... venting is the only sure way to sex them.
Hmm thats not good. Ok well i'm going to find my magnifier and look again.
