I actually do have some girls with crazy long ventrals but I agree, along with the beard it's a good sign of a boy. Another easy way to tell is to look for the ovipositor (egg spot) on females. Of course, juvenile males can sometimes have them too so it's not foolproof

I recently added three of my juvenile girls to my sorority tank... and when I finally saw them all together, I realized that my second smallest "girl" was a tiny boy all this time XD I've had the fish since they were 6 weeks old and all this time, I thought he was a girl and named him Stella haha!

It's soooo hard to tell. He has the egg spot, but that beard gave him away. He's now back in his previous home all alone, except for my son who is avoiding taking his nap right now.

Cute! I swear while we were playing with my son's little http://www.toysrus.com/product/index...ductId=3384749 he was singing Ee-I-Ee-I-Oh.. not fully since he's only 5 days shy of one, but it was adorable.
