help ID two new PetCo babies

had alot of fun raising my first petco female baby that i bought several months ago. she has grown alot and colored in beautifully. so i decided to get 2 more. one male (pretty certain based on pelvic fin length and very noticeable gill flap when flaring) and a little female. any idea what tail types? my guess was standard veiltail? combtail? both have semi spiky caudal edges. the female is white with patches in certain angles and shows green iridescence in other angles. kinda neat

Male will be a regular VT, when growing their fins do not grow at the same rate which will give you a spiky appearance as they continue to grow out. The "female" actually looks male to me from these angles with the fin lengths and the body structure. Looks possible to be a PK or a DeT

I hope it's a female and not another male! only have space for one more male which is the baby in the first pics. may have to "make" space if it turns into a male.

Can you get pictures of it with the light shining behind it, the light basically facing at you while you take a picture? This will allow us to see through it and tell you if it is a female or not :)

Yeah, there are no ovaries as of yet so until they either grow in or never appear, I'm saying male but the form does look a little female-ish. We'll see!
