I say female for 3 reasons.
Vent is close to anus.
General genital area is close to anal fin.
Thickness and roundness of genital papilla.

...but I could be completely wrong. :lol:
Admittedly, I still don't have venting of SA/CA cichlids totally down just yet but going by what I've observed in fish that have been confirmed through successful spawning I've been able to take note of some physical differences.

Fish is here (watch in high quality playback):

The fact that it is still 23 cm after 3 years, no fin trailers, dull colour made me confused about its gender.
