Hmmm...the size, shape, and length of the dorsal and anal fin look more appropriate for a female. Also, the caudal fin is rounded on the edges, making me think that it originally was not much longer than it is now. Perhaps check for an ovipositor - I think I can see one in the picture, but it is a bit too fuzzy for me to tell for sure.

Anyway, this is one lucky fish! Hopefully you can get the fin issue sorted out without any problems :)
