Need help

Ok guys and gals im like 99.9% sure I have a male in my sorority for quite a few reasons Reason #1 All the females are SOOO eggy right now they look like there about to explode ( all except for this one who is super model slim ) Reason #2 He/she is the only one in the tank without ANY sort of fin damage Reason #3 He/she has SUPER long ventral fins the girls..teeny tiny ones ( mostly because hes ripped them all off but one does have intact fins that i can use to compare ) Reason#4 when I took him out of the tank and put him in a cup beside my males to see what he'd do he didnt flare but he FLIPPED OUT zooming all over the cup knocking his head against the side he wanted to get at them in a BAAAD way I think hes a wild type I just need others to confirm what im sure is a correct assumption ty in advance The first to pictures are the suspect and the last is one of the females to show how eggy they all are I mean there HUGE!!!!

Yep, you have a plakat boy! He's very nice.
Eventually the girls will slim down by dropping or reabsorbing their eggs.

yup if he doesnt have the oviposter then... male it is. females will ALWAYS have the oviposter/egg spot ^^
haruhi looks exactly like your fishy but she has the oviposter as well as vertical stripings occasionally.

If he doesn't have an oviposter than it is a male. I don't really see what other help can be given. That does stink though. I have one that I still don't believe is a female but she has an oviposter from what I can tell.
