It's a female. Like it's been said above in these pictures you see eggs,and the egg spot. You can also tell by the fins. The dorsals in Male Plakats and female VTs are different.And one of my females has a pretty big beard too. She's still a female =]

Look at the difference in the top fin. The female's starts really towards the back and the fins aren't as full. Looks exactly like yours. It IS a female.

As SK, has pointed out, there is a BIG diff between female VT's and Plakats. Mr Yuck should be a Ms or Mrs Yuck. I'm 95% sure that Mr Yuck is a girl.

i am hoping that there is some plan to use the floating to identify rather than actually attempt breeding at this point... as stated in other posts i (or anyone else) can not TELL you how to manage your fish however i would rather strongly suggest that the focus at this point should continue to be stable water, good conditions, and long term success at maintaining these and healthy fish for months before attempting a breeding program..
this will also give the opportunity to learn more about what is required on such an adventure and preparation time to gather the materials needed. (many, many tanks, a good system for care, and ultimately [unless you are intending to care for a few hundred fry] a place for them to go when they reach the right size)
