Sexing of juveniles can be tough.  The best way is to look at the pelvic 
fins.  The leading edge is black on females.  This is true with every 
Apistogramma I have ever seen, and I'm guessing it is also true with caetei, 
as the brooding females use these fins as signalling/communications devices 
for the fry.
