Rooster in the Hen house

I am so paranoid that I have a male in my sorority.. I do have a younger female I just added and I have noticed she has a rather large beard. Can females have a little larger beard?

Perhaps they are setting up the pecking order in the new bigger tank? You know like when you toss a new pillow on the bed, everyone tries to get to it first?

In my home with 5 adopted cats, it can be very loud when the screaming starts. But it stops quickly enough as they settle back to a routine.

Can you get a picture or video of it flairing and did you notice an egg spot? Although I have heard some young males can can the spot as well...

As proof, my boy has a false egg spot, but his fins are far too long to be anything but male. Females can have "large" beards within reason, and they can also have fins as long as a male Plakat (sometimes even a bit longer), just to make things confusing for us humans...

one of my CT females has a manly beard, but everyone here insists she's a girl.
