Almost 4" now. Sorry, caught it while it's pale. Changes color from dark to pale very quick, I guess to blend in with the surroundings. Gets almost black when in the shade with bright blue spots on its face.

So, I was assuming it's a female because of all the blue on its face. But, I thought females had a rounded top fin? This one is starting to grow a stringer (point) at the end of its top fin. Almost 4" now.

If there are no fish to nip the fins, females can grow pointed fins as well. It is a female.

That's what I thought. Someone voted Male..
I voted male without thinking after looking at the dorsal fin. But looking at blue on the gill agree she's a female.
