To me it looks female. The belly, the finnage is the same as my longer finned VT females, the ventrals are short, but again it can be a very young male.

You'll just have to have patience and give the baby a couple months.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.

Looks like a male to me. The ventrals are nice and chubby, and look at the size of that beard! :)

I agree with Bombalurina. It looks like a young developed male. The beard is one of a few giveaways

its a boy. the beard gives it away, as well as the absence of an ovidepositor (the white spot usually visible under the belly of females).
