Female VT or male PK? Help?

So someone I know form another site PM'd me. She's been trying to breed her vt male to a vt female she bought at the same pet store. She said she was having agression isssues with the female and that she was feeling less sure it was a female. She sent me som epics;

Iffy about the color but I think I see the egg tube here, soo...

But then these next two pics had me scratching my head, because... well, you'll see.

The bodyline seems a little femimine to me... and there's the egg tube in one pic as far as I can tell. The fins and colors however... Still, I've seen colorful female before at my pet store so? *scratches head* Any help? XD

no sure if male or female, but it does look PK to me and not like a VT.

the ventrall\s have me thinking male, and the flare picture.

I've only owned one confirmed PK though. xD

That very much looks like a male PK, imo. I only have one, but body shape and fins both say PK male to me.

I also agree with Male PK. I just bought a "female VT" from Petco that was a male plakat. Don't go by the ovipositor tho, males can have them too sometimes. So by the flare pic and the aggression issues, and the fact that it doesn't look to me like the fish has any eggs or barring, I'd say they definitely have themselves a pk male. He is a handsome devil that's for sure!
