Hi, I was doing some research and found a link to a forum of expert fish keepers who says that .."dovii can look male or female right up past 7-8" ime, spotting it in paired fins is the only traits that only the males exhibit, easily visible at 3-4 inch. if it get dots in its unpaired soft finnage it's a male." ... le.700485/ ... males get small matching spots on their single fins, dorsal, anal and tail.
If it has spotting in these it's a male.

MALE DOVII = Spots on tail, dorsal & anal fins

FEMALE DOVII = NO Spots on tail, dorsal & anal fins

Hope this helps.
