I see... pff... this is just great. I hate the fact I'll have to take him back so they give me a "real" female. ! I don't have space for another 2.5gal and I just bought all the stuff for my sorority. Damn... Well, thank you guys! I'm sure he'll be a beautiful man when he gets older. But, what about Gamisha? You all said that males have long ventrals... but, I really think that she's a girl. If she were I "he", I'm sure her fins would be much longer by now and she would be much more aggressive towards other males, right?

he's a pretty plakat, though you should take him back if you don't have the right set up, time, or space for him.... or you could ship him to me! (Sorry, I really shouldn't joke :P) But anyways, take him back and try to explain that he is a male to the staff so they'll put him in the right cup.

I'm under the impression Gamisha is a male plakat as well, "she" doesn't seem to look very female to me, but you'll need other people's opinions as well.

A plakat is a short finned male, BTW, so he doesn't have long fins. There are a few differences between plakats and females.

Please don't take him back. You already have him and he's very handsome. I'm sure you can find somewhere for him.

You all have to realize Colibir already said she has no more space. If she has a limit, please respect that. If you where in her shoes, you probably wouldn't enjoy being pressured by others to do something you physically can't.

Waa! Thank you everyone! I'm actually in shock and traumatized to think that my Gamishi is a BOY! :'(! Well... I love my fish just the same. Maybe that's why "she" loved to dance and is so very active. But, the other one... I really can't keep him. I would love to, but, with the fact that Gamisha is a HE the only 2.5gal that I have left would be for "her" because I don't think I can put "her" in my new sorority. (Sigh). And, I would really feel bad to have the new little guy in a 0.5gal (or less) bowl. I really spent a lot on the sorority stuff... I can't give him a proper home right now.

Thank's for your support JKFish!
