Major identity crisis!!!

Ok so a couple of weeks ago I posted pics of my three new "females"
Pineapple/Luna has been really aggressive since we put her in the tank, she has torn the other girl's fins to pieces, and her fins just seem to be getting longer and longer, I think she may be a boy :/ HELP?!
I have posted a picture, sorry it isnt very good.I really need to know!!!she/he is in a breeding trap for now, until I know for certain, Please help!!!

very pretty coloring~ I agree with Sweeda, but don't boys have the to long fins in the front? Beards i think is what they are called...unless the picture is so blurry I can't see xD

Males only have beards when they flare. It doesn't show otherwise.

Hmm... she does sort of look like a male. Does (s)he have an eggspot? (S)he looks like a young VT or DeT, but I'm not an expert. I'd say (S)he's a male. :/

I think it's a young male delta. There's no way a fish with fins that long is a female. Also, the body shape is not feminine. Females usually have a rounded belly.

it does show even without flaring, but it is most likey a YOUNG male
because young males tend to look like females until there around 4 or 5 months (IMO) but yes it is a male (to me it does)

Looks like one. What are you going to do with him? Probably need to re-name him. LOL.
