Help identifying gender/ getting a second opnion.

Okay, I've had this one for 4 weeks now. Guessing male, because I really can't see an egg spot, and I don't think I see ovaries. Looking for a second, better informed opinion.

Depending on the age of the fry, the ovaries could grow in later. Looks male but really hard to tell since the light behind isn't so strong, this is why I usually suggest a flashlight since it's stronger light source. I have a similar baby whom I bought was a male but turned out to be female when her ovaries grew in!
Pierce when I first brought her home:


And this past week, she's now been with me a month. She's doubled her size as well and is almost a full grown fish!

Okay. I'll keep an eye out and try to get a better back lit pic of L2. Other thing is that L2 flares more like my boy Yue (circling the mirror, rippling his fins, turning sideways) than my girls (stare down, dart forward, face mirror). But, I'll try to get a better pic later.

My girls still flare up a storm lol. Here she is flaring, she flares at 0:50 if you don't want to watch the whole minute lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BnBjUswK7bM
And this is my breeder girl flaring at a new arrival. Mostly wanted to see his reaction but the video ended up being of Isis lol https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LL8qyJRhWU

I see stomach and (I think) swim bladder, but no cone shaped ovaries. So currently looking like a male? Guessing (s)he is 10 or 11 weeks.
