After seeing that video, it's DEFINITELY a male. Also, that tank is too small. I'd get him at least a 2.5 gallon tank, with a heater. He'll be SO happy to have that space.

Awesome! Thanks for all the help. I have a heater and a bigger tank for him, it was just hard to video around it all. I guess I'll have to look closer when I'm looking for a female next time. lol

Yay! Now he gets to be renamed... Rain is kinda girly, I think he's being re-dubbed as Shintaro. Taro for short. :D

I know the lids weren't switched because the actual cup he was in said Veiltail female. Life's just funny that way but who knows what happened. I'm sure he'll get past this little identity crisis. lol
