Is this a boy or girl?

Labeled female by petsmart. She's got an oviposter. But she's got such big fins. "she" zipped around the sorority like she was on speed. And was just an absolute monster. She looked like she had a tiny beard when flaring. Did I get a mis labeled boy?

Edit: as you can see she got into a fight. At this point I'm trying to find a warm place for her to spend the night. (floating in the sorority involved alot of tipping over.

Looks like a male VT to me.. can be wrong though with the curve in the cup, but the tail fin looks too long to be a female.

that's what I was wondering, his bottom.. anal? fin was even longer before it got nipped. IT would definitely explain the reaction.

It's a male. The caudal fin is long and flowing, and the dorsal fin shows he is a VT :) very pretty though!

"he" was bought to be in a sorority... back to petsmart tomorrow. The other looks more female, barring up for the other boys and everything.

yeah that is a definite he. My females flare sometimes, but rarely, and not as full fledged with the face plates :)

I thought "she" had big fins... better check out the other one, as soon as my friend uploads them for me, he's got a nice camera

Good idea :) can you use another male, get him/her to flare? That'll totally help!

my other one shows no interest in flaring, I see bars, the white spot, and wiggling like mad for the boys.

Lol which definitely means a girl :p especially the submission signs. Does your new one show stress or submission lines at all? Males won't, females usually do.
