No, I'm positive. I typed it in to a fish expert that works at the shed aquarium

Really? Because it looks nothing like my female at that age and it looks JUST like the little boy someone has here around that age. The fins are sooooo long for a girl. I would say if you are thinking of breeding that fish don't put it in with another male. You might end up with a dead little boy.

How strong is the water coming out of the filter? I've had what I thought was a nesting female. Turned out to be a frothy filter.

The water coming out isn't very strong. Actually, there are bubbles in different spots around the tank. There is a small accumulation on the opposite side of the filter and sparse bubbles in other random places. I'm pretty sure I saw her make some bubbles in one of the random places but I can't say for certain, she may have just been taking a breath.

I don't have any plans to breed Fae, but I did want to start up a sorority. If Fae turns out to be a boy, that's not happening, and that's fine I'm totally in love with whatever he/she is. How much bigger will Fae need to be in order to tell for sure one way or the other?

Here you can see the ventral fins. Fae seems to have added even more bubbles now, but in different areas and you can see some of them in the pic.

Still say it looks like a male, something about that tail is not female. I am staring at both mine and another person veiltail female and his tail is longer and it's starting to get the iconic male veiltail look.

See this is a female tail

Yup I see that. I'll keep Fae by him/herself and see how he/she grows. Thanks everyone

Looks like a young male to me.
The "egg spot" is very confusing because the male's cloaca can protude on well fed fish so it looks like a ovopositor on males.
My juvies are so well fed I'm having a horrible time sexing 10 week olds!
