Is it female? What kind is she?

So. I got this supposed 'girl' about 3 months ago. She was sold to me as a girl from out of a all female tank and lately I've just been really questioning her gender, I know it's hard because she's of pastel/white colouring but I'm just ... Curious as her name is Cinderella. I'm also quite confused on what type she is because her tail is just ... Frilly. Any ideas? ;o

She looks like a female Halfmoon Plakat to me! When Halfmoon's aren't flared sometimes they can look like deltatails so sometimes you'll have to wait until she flares. And Halfmoon, as I have learned with my boy Mercury, is just the fact that when flared the tail makes the D shape or halfmoon, but they can have a smooth outline or frilly like that and like my Mercury as well.

This is Mercury for a bit of a reference:

What's the difference of a delta tail?

This actually helps! I'll check her out when she flares. Thank you so much. (:

delta tails are like HM except they don't nearly reach a 180 degree flare. there are also super delta tails that almost reach 180 degrees.

When she flares it's not really much of a .. Flare. Her fins don't quite touch and her dorsal just straightens out. It's hard to explain, it's like .. Her fins don't arch as much. Blah, I'll try photo.

I got her flaring! Luckily for me she's uh .. Very aggressive. <<

I think she may just be a half moon. (:

Yessum, she did the bubble nest.
My other 3 boys have them and my other female is quite large with eggs, or she's just constipated.
