I'm still thinkin girl, in that top pic you can see an ovipositor and cant see a beard. Cute fish, maybe a girl with extra testosterone.
The only sure fire way to know is to try and breed it haha

You don't often, if ever, see males with that kind of coloration either. Or at least, I never have. But a lot of the females at my pet stores are little Cambodians like that cutie so who knows for sure. The red Cambodian males I've seen have a more purpleish tint to their bodies, more iridescent pink and less transparent pink like your baby. Seeing your babies makes me really want to rush out and rescue all the little Cambodian girls who look like Miss Piggy and her sisters.

And I'd take her if I could. :D The other babies are probably raising their ventrals right now going, "Here here! We second that motion!"

Have to agree with the majority.. no beard, dorsal fin is too small and female shaped, egg sac, body shape screams female.

Females will make bubble nests too.. mine has. I just think she is more aggressive and territorial then the others. Other then her sisters, I wouldn't trust her in a sorority hehe.

But she is a doll! So pretty!

Thank you :) She will end up in the 30g divided with her own space for sure. Shes a stalker, she would hide in cubby holes waiting on unsuspecting siblings to swim by so she could give chase and nip. Ive shown her males and females but she only reacts to females. That reaction consisits of swimming to her nest and wiggling for them to come over. She is a manly girl =x Her mother is very calm and happily swims around, rarely flaring at anyone else but her father is an old rotten man who hates everything. She must have picked up his personality xD I held her up to day light and could see the shape of her eggsack as well. All i know `100% sure is that her siblings are so happy to have her gone! :))
