Help me determine Akira's sex, and updates on the other guys. Tons of pics btw

Before you scroll down through ALL my pictures, if you could just glance for me and give me advice on some questions...
1. Do you think Akira, (the first one) is female?
2. Do you think Volos has fin rot? (they are a tad crumpley looking at the tips)
3. How do you think Spoof and Haruki are looking these days health wise.

So the fish are all doing great, the two in that one cup are healing up and gaining color. Thier fins are healing up nicely too.
I think Akira is a female, I mean I really do, just with long fins...
I know hasishi (the one in the cup with her) is a male.
He changes from purpleish to turquioesish blue.
Here are the pictures,,, prepare for spamness.

Here is the one that I think is a female.. Akira.

Anyways, here is Hasashi, the one that was in her cup. He is a very cute one. Isn't the way he changes colors amazing O.O it is only lighting I think, but still.
I think he got stressed out during pics though

Here is Volos, the Crowntail I got, do you guys see anything wrong with his fins?
He has perked up a lot in the tank.

Random updates of Haruki Spoof and the gang

1. For right now, it could either be a female with long fins, or a young male. The only way to really tell will be to a wait a few months (: The way she/he is flaring in one of the pics makes me think males, but some females flare, too. Only time will tell.

2. It looks like finrot COULD be setting in. Give him a couple of water changes, add in a pinch of salt, and then see if he perks up a bit. If not, it could just be permanent damage from being in a cup. If it is finrot, you caught it at the early stages, and should be easily beaten back.

3. Everyone looks great! Healthy, happy bettas. You're a good mama! :P

the first one is definitely 100% a female! Eggy belly, short vents and a very obvious ovipositor! And she is adorable!!

Hasashi is absolutely stunning!! I love his coloring!!

In the pictures of Volos it looks like he may have a bit of finrot in a couple of fins in some of the pictures, in others it doesn't, so im not really sure. But I would add a bit of aquarium salt to his water and make sure its crystal clean and see how he does.

All of your babies are gorgeous!!! Great job!

I don't see any signs of Finrot. But i'm not an expert ;) My crowntail has the old curled fin, but he was born that way, and momma loves him.

Didn't notice the ventral fins before, so Akira is a girl :P Most males have loong ventral fins.
