She's a HE! lol

Ya know, I've had this one molly fish now for about 3 or 4 weeks I think. Ended up naming "her" Millie. Went to the lfs weeks ago in need of a female molly to keep the male to female ratio good in my tank.... at 1:2. So I pick out this little orange with black speck one, and because she was swimming around a bit and I couldn't get a great look, I asked the guy at the shop to confirm what I thought.... that it was a female. He said... yeah, I think that's a female. Then we checked with his wife, she said "yep, a girl". So, I've had her this whole time and just 2 minutes ago I looked and saw a gonopodium.... a modified fin that males have. OMG! How could all 3 of us have missed it and I didn't notice for at least 3 weeks?! Geesh!

The fin looked like a female's fin, I swear! Now it's a male's fin! Gotta be something in the water....

So, gotta change Millie's name now.
