Identify?

Male/ female? Tail type? He/ she is mystery to me. There is no visible ovipositor, it blows bubblenests, flares at males but lives peacefully with females.

Well, if it blows bubblenests, then it should be male... right? |D How weird, a gender-confused fish...

Looks like a male marble plakat. Not sure on if it's a delta or a squished up halfmoon. c:

The ventrals are pretty short, and the face just seems strange to me.... I'm going to go female, here. Females have been known to blow nests. When she flares, does she have a beard? Females USUALLY don't...

Like CodeRed said, the ventrals are pretty short...No white dot between the ventrals? A male could have one, but all females have them, so if there is no dot, it is a male. The dot is pretty evident on Jennifer, my fish, so it should be easy to spot.

Not all of the time. I've read where females' ovipositor is all but invisible when young for some >_<
