Elvis or Priscilla?

Hi all!

I posted pics of this little one before, but it's been 2 weeks! I still am unsure if this fish is going to get to stay Elvis, or will be called Priscilla :P (S)he was a larger baby at Petco when I got them, it has grown, but not by leaps and bounds. I'm not sure of the normal growth rate though.

There's no obvious egg spot, the stripes mostly go away but seem to reappear easily with stress. (S)he lives in 15 gallon portion of a split tank, I just took the photos while I was cleaning the tank.

Any ideas what gender/eventual finnage this one is?

Day 1

Today (2 weeks later)

I think that it will be a girl, although I'm not expert and time will definitely tell. Side note it's ADORABLE.

I would say a male crowntail :) His ventrals are quite long in proportion to his body and his body shape is more "boyish".

I think this one is a male..looks a bit skinny to me..probably this one is a crowntail x plakat mix. And looking at the head and base of the caudal compare to his overal body, this one looks like it had not grown "the smallest in the spawn" kinda fish. just my 2 cents though :)
