idk if it's correct but have read pectoral fin contour differs between the sexes, more than just thickening of the first ray in males. Unfortunately haven't been able to find again the website that explained it best, They did say it takes practice. The best way I can summarize it is to say the lateral tip of male pec comes to a more acute point (think spinnaker sail) and female pec fin is slightly rounded by comparison (jib sail). Can anyone confirm this?

Also, best wishes for finding the right "bull oranda"

This is true, but not always accurate. I had a female Ryukin with thick, male-like leading pectoral rays. This is why I always say to look for breeding stars. Though females can have stars, this is very rarely the case, making stars a more accurate form of telling. :)
