Really? Because it looks nothing like my female at that age and it looks JUST like the little boy someone has here around that age. The fins are sooooo long for a girl. I would say if you are thinking of breeding that fish don't put it in with another male. You might end up with a dead little boy.
The water coming out isn't very strong. Actually, there are bubbles in different spots around the tank. There is a small accumulation on the opposite side of the filter and sparse bubbles in other random places. I'm pretty sure I saw her make some bubbles in one of the random places but I can't say for certain, she may have just been taking a breath.
I don't have any plans to breed Fae, but I did want to start up a sorority. If Fae turns out to be a boy, that's not happening, and that's fine I'm totally in love with whatever he/she is. How much bigger will Fae need to be in order to tell for sure one way or the other?
Still say it looks like a male, something about that tail is not female. I am staring at both mine and another person veiltail female and his tail is longer and it's starting to get the iconic male veiltail look.
Looks like a young male to me.
The "egg spot" is very confusing because the male's cloaca can protude on well fed fish so it looks like a ovopositor on males.
My juvies are so well fed I'm having a horrible time sexing 10 week olds!
