New baby ;)

Hey all!
It's been... more than two years since I last posted....
*looks around sheepishly*
But it's great to be back!

As of now I have a male veiltail named Orcrist, and just two days ago I got this gorgeous baby :)
A pet store worker said the baby might turn out to be a male crown-tail. What do you guys think? I'm not sure if it's old enough to tell, even though it was one of the larger babies in the store and is already starting to develop some color.

Oh, by the way, the tank/bowl that it's in right now is temporary - I'm hopefully getting another heated 2 gallon soon (like the one I have for Orcrist).

Thanks guys :)
A veiltail is what I initially thought as well, but I guess we'll all have to wait and see!

Another quick question: can anyone make a guess at how old this little guy/gal might be? He/She is about one inch in length, if that helps any.

Probably a couple months. And if its already an inch I'd assume that it'll be a female, males would be developing longer fins by that size
