And yes it's top fin is a little shredded looking. It is looking better than before tho. I had it in a nice bowl before I knew the importance of a filter and what not. My cats had knocked over the bowl and broke it. Fish survived as you see but with some fin damage. But is doing well now.

LOL still hard to tell. For now I'd probably say female... If she was labled that, she has short fins, and it's not unheard of for females to make nests. We won't know 100% until we can figure out if she has ovaries or not.

Either a female. Or could be a male plakat. Would need a straight side view without flash to really be able to tell.

Hmmm I would say male, while the upperfin is high.
And yes also females can make bubblenests and put their own eggs in there, also take care of the nest if males won't do it.
In my fishroom, my opaque males have a fake Overy, so they fake me too, only to put them all apart than they will develope as males.
Maybe a nice way to see the difference between the a male and female

looks like a female to me! I have a female crowntail that makes bubble nests, but they're not as impressive as her male counterparts.

Looks like a male PK to me in body shape/size, dorsal width, and caudal width. Even the HM females I've seen don't have dorsals with that kind of width or height, even though it's damaged.

One way to tell, try to get him/her to flare. Females don't have beards like males have. I could show you pictures to compare if you want.
