Is she actually a he?

I have three females in QT tank together and i am feeling a little concerned about this girl as she has such aggresion even when eating she lunges.

Also compared to my other 8 girls she has larger fins.

Even as inexperienced as I am, I am 100% sure that is a male.

Ive decided to keep the big fella...he will have to reside in my 1 and a half gallon(is this big enough)once its freed up.I guess he was meant to be with me

Besides i know the pet store would not believe me and would put him back in with the females...they only ever have a few long fin males.

definitely male, there's no question. females have short fins, but his are the exact shape of a desireable plakat male.
