Well, they've been healed for a couple weeks now, but I was having issues with my camera. So anyway, here she is with her tail and fins in full glory!! I'm still thinking she's a plakat, but if any of you see something different, please let me know.
Shes definitely gorgeous, a lovely long-finned girl.....but certainly not a PK, IMO. Just a VT girl. Her fins are flowyer and longer then most PK males I see. ;)
I was beginning to think that as well. When I first got her, her fins were much shorter (and she was much smaller) and when she jumped out and when I thought her fins were fully healed, she looked more like a plakat, but now I see that they are longer than that. There was still some question as to whether or not she was a male or a female (I bought her as a male dragonscale), but I'm pretty convinced she's a girl.
Its a little hard to see in the picture, but her ventrals look pretty small so I'd guess just a long-finned VT girl. ;) Though I suppose if her fins grow out any longer, she may end up being a he. xD
Shes grown beautiful by the way though, great work!
There is an egg spot, and she gets very bright breeding stripes. The other day they were especially bright when I came in wearing my bright winter coat. Not only that, her purple irridesence that you can normally only see with a flashlight, turned very bright and you could see it with regular lighting. She also seems to get very eggy looking, make a few small, random bubble nests in the middle of the tank, and then the next day, she's skinny again, and the bubble nests dissipate.
My male on the hand, makes very deliberate and large nests around his plants and on the side of the wall away from the filter. I know that's not a comparison, as some males don't really make nests, but who knows, she could indeed be a boy - I've had her since August, so I'm guessing that would make her about 7 or 8 months old now.
