Evidence Supporting this KER
The anterior chamber is formed by evagination from the cranial end of the posterior chamber (Robertson et al., 2007, Winata et al., 2009). Therefore it is plausible to assume that the anterior chamber cannot inflate in cases where the posterior chamber is not inflated. Additionally, it is plausible to assume that when the posterior chamber is smaller due to incomplete inflation, the anterior chamber will also fail to completely inflate and therefore will also be smaller.

Domain of Applicability
There is no evidence of sex-dependent processes involved in swim bladder chamber develoment and inflation. Additionally, zebrafish are undifferentiated gonochorists, and gonad differentiation starts only around 23-25 dpf (Uchida et al., 2002), after the time point of anterior chamber inflation (around 21 dpf).
