With Convicts, females usually have a pattern of orange reflective scales on the belly, and also an iridescent spot on the dorsal. Males ultimately grow larger. Firemouths are less easy, but males usually have longer fin extensions and a more slender body shape relative to length. If you are interested in Mesoamerican Cichlids take a look at
