Looks like a female, but you can be 100% sure by looking for an eggspot. If she has one-female if she doesnt-male

I think it's a boy, look at those ventrals! And yes, check for the ovipositor.

Looks female to me. Short ventrals, short fins, small beard bt to be sure. Heck for a small white dot in between the beginning of the anal and the ventrals. It's called the ovipositor

Oh, sorry for the wrong word. I forgot it was with a p. Her ventrals are pretty long and a TINY bit fat so that's why I thought. But you're a very experienced breeder so you should be right. :l

I also think male. You cannot go 100% off of "ovipositor" either, some males can extend the cloaca. The ventrals look male.

To me her ventrals look short, lol.. My males ventrals are twice as long as that. I guess I'm no used to regular ventrals as with HMPK'S the standards call for the ventrals being 2/3 the length of the body which is LONG. Everything says girl to me including the lipstick, lol. What tailtype would it be if it was a boy? Looks near identical to my red HM female
