New family members...and a girl/boy dilemma!

So, it's been kind of a rough year in the tanks. I lost most of my older females to age and age-related ailments, and my boy Macaulay after a hard battle (Thanks again for the help and support throughout that sad business). I was left with just my boy Dexter and one older female, Scarlet, who has since moved into a smaller tank of her own. With the ten gallon looking sad and empty, I wandered into my LPS and come home with a few new friends.

As always, I went in with the mindset of "No more boys! One is enough!". Naturally, I couldn't stick to that after finding this fellow, who is in need of some good clean water and a name:





Then I picked out my girls. Meet Hannah:



Nora:





Holly (who is a wiggler):





And a lovely who is yet nameless:





There is also one more, whom I was SWORN is female. My fish guy and I had a discussion about her gender, but I'm not quite convinced. She has LONG fins and no visible eggspot, though the positioning of the fins looks female to me. She was so pretty I took her anyways, but if she is a boy, I have a bit of a problem heh. Opinions please?

Anyways, if she is a girl, her name is Lucy:





So these are my new little ones! They're all in qt right now, and everyone is doing really well :) I can't wait to introduce them to their new homes!

Keep refreshing and the pics will pop up. I guess it takes the site a bit to load them.

The last fish looks like a male to me... Only because of his/her beard? (or what looks to be a beard in the first picture.) I can't really tell without a closer picture though. Love that fish though.

You got some nice fish though!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I wish my little baby would grow into a little girl like your Nora. (long fins but female) Sadly mine's a boy though lol I love him anyway, just had hope....

Where on earth did you find those females?

When I looked at your red girl who doesn't have a name Macey popped in my head.

And SilentBetta we can try to see if your fish like Lucy is a male or female.

Thanks for the input guys. I'm nervous now.

Twilight, I got them all from a pet store called Pet Cultures. These lovelies are typical of the females they have on a regular basis. They have some incredible males too. As for the name Macey, it's cute but all my fish are named after old movie characters ;)

Betteluver, Nora is definitely female. She's got an egg spot and her ventrals are little. She's the same shape as my Scarlet, who is also definitely female (got along in a sorority).

Are we sure about Lucy? Her dorsal fin is smaller and set further back...
(I think I'm grasping at straws here :S)

males* oh goodness, what a fail. I apoligize my stupid iphone. >_< I'm sorry! On my phone I couldn't see, I only saw the long fins. She's a lovely spadetail. :)
Lucy, however is most DEFINITELY male. Those fins are enormous. Looks like a delta tail male. He's very handsome though.
