LOL.. I'm flattered that everyone thinks so highly of me *blush*

I'm not entirely positive. He/She looks VERY similar to a female VT I have. However if he/she is being as aggressive as you say keeping it separate from the others is a very good idea.

The test I use when I'm not sure is to put them next to a male and see how the react. A female will usually flare head on whereas a male will flare and turn his body sidelong to show the other fish his impressive fins.

Big beard is a good indication that he's male.

My PK "General Lee' was actually thought to be a female when he was rescued. His rescuer even adopted him out to me as a girl... but when he arrived I knew immediately he wasn't a girl. In her defense however he was extremely malnourished and completely white so it was an honest mistake. Good think I didn't put him in my sorority LOL

Horizontal stripes are a sign of stress, both sexes can get them.

well I floated my most aggressive male in the tank with her and no flaring from her but she did drop the stress stripes instantly and colored up like she was before and she got these red lines on her gill covers which went away when I took him out
