Is Pierce.. a girl?

Pierce came in a cup that said male. And for about a month and a half, I didn't dispute it. I mean, Pierce has really long fins. But I started thinking.. I've never seen him make a bubble nest. Never seen his beard. He didn't huff up that much at Flair. He flares, but it's just his gills, nothing more. And then today I pulled the paper away from the space between his and Caspian's tanks, so they could see other, so I could try and spot a beard or something.. and Caspian flares up and his beard comes out. But Pierce, he doesn't flare as much.. chases Caspian. and then these stripes come up.









Male fishies don't do this do they?
Demi gets these stripes when she's around a male.. and did the same with Caspian. And I put Pierce next to Demi for a minute.. she didn't stripe up like she did with Caspian.


There's no way Pierce is a girl right?

Um, that's a male. There's absolutely no way a female could have fins that long. Also, males can get vertical bars. It's not just for breeding, it's a sign of submission. Not all males flare at mirrors, either. I've had a few that won't.
