Help classifying female type

This is my first female I've owned so far and boy she is a little fire ball! She is so much better at blowing bubble nests than any of my boys ever have been. I'm thinking I'll name her Anemone, after one of my favorite characters in Eureka Seven.

My question though, is what type of tail she is. I think it's really hard to tell with the females so I thought maybe someone with more experience could help me. Or perhaps I'm even wrong in that she's a she, but I doubt that. And I'm figuring she's just a veiltail but I just wanted to know for sure. :)

Oh, and I want to also show a picture of this gorgeous boy at petco that I also wanted so bad! I just don't have the room. :< If anybody in Northern Indiana sees him though and wants to know where he is I'd be happy to PM you the location he was at! I just don't want a pretty boy like him to die in his cup and knowing who gets him would be even better!

Awwe, she is totally an Anemone! I'm a Eureka Seven fan too :D I'm pretty sure shes a VT.

Edit: I bet we're the only ones who are pronouncing it right. XD

HRRRNG THAT MALE IS SO GORGEOUS.

Yep, she looks like a vt. I wouldn't be surprised if she turned out to be a young male, though. ;)

That's a male... females don't blow nests like that. I'd say it's a young VT Male. Sorry. Also, the body shape is not feminine. But I'd say the biggest indicator is that bubble nest.

Actually, I'm pretty sure some females do make nests. I've heard of it happening with other member's girls.

It's very rare, and that even LOOKS like a young male. Not the first picture, I know that's a male, but the other ones.

Females do make bubble nests, alot of members come on this forum like "whats with that?" but some females just do. Totally female, look at the tiny ventrals, the dorsal, and just the shape of her. :)

I still think it's a male. There are MANY young males that look like that. Just because his fins look tiny now, doesn't mean it isn't a male.

Looks male... I do have a female that makes bubbles colonies, but nothing that gets real height like that one.

I would definitely say that's a male. Most likely with a really bad case of fin rot or tail biting or something, but definitely male.
