How do you sex Malawi cichlids?

Some general guide lines for sexing Malawi cichlids are that some males have egg spots on their anal fins and are much more colourful while the females can be smaller with rounded fins but this is not guaranteed.

If you need to know you can have them vented which is sometimes frowned upon.
