Hu is male.
Archi is the female
Skerries is a male

what fins are you comparing to get that conclusion? I can't use his tail, since it's still growing back. I'm trying to learn how to determine fin type without the tail

I thought the marble male was Mushu. His tail is growing back, but the roundness of it's outer edge and the way the tail spreads is too symmetrical in my view to be VT.

Yup, that's Mushu.
the EE is named Hu (they're very close)

I think he's a delta, but if he's a vt he's the prettiest one I've even seen! Either way gorgeous fish!

Thank you! His tail has come a long way from where it was when he came home. His colors recently became all dramatic in the last couple of weeks too. I have a color progression in the Marbles thread, and the before and after thread.

He used to look like a calico cat! Then he had black smudges on either side of his tail, and a red spot on his head. Now he's all dark and mysterious
