I know it's pretty much impossible at this size (just over 1") but I noticed in the profile that the male shows faint bars where the female is clean. Is this any indication of sex, or just happened to be that the particular fish in the pics had bars?

I think that profile picture is misleading. Both males and females should look identical - and without barring (unless stressed).

Males tend to get a whitish leading edge to their dorsal fins as well as growing larger - but you won't see either of those until they get to be 4" or so...
