What is she??

Alright, so obviously she's a copper HM... but look at her tail-I've never seen a tail like that before (or I just don't get out much.) The closest she is to the tail-types is a halfsun. I'm confused... please help. Really sorry if this is an obvious question... She has rays on her tail that extend into four seperate rays. Then as the main rays reach the end of the tail, the number of extended rays go down to two. (Sorry, that was the best wording I could find...) The picture in my avatar shows her tail much better.

That's a girl? If anything it looks like a boy PK to me, but I don't own females so I may be wrong.

She has such a beautiful tail. I love her.

Looks like a female to me. The HM females have nice big tails a lot of the time.... at least the ones I see on aquabid do.

Yep, Hattie's a girl. Her anal fin is much much shorter than my PK boy's.

I don't always trust egg spots. The color/shape just kind of threw me off, haha.
