Yea that's why I said possibly, she looks like she could be short bodied which can be caused by a bent spine but not always.
It's hard to tell from all the pics but in the shot of her body, she looked like her back arches up and doesn't have the length it should.

You are just gonna have to do what you think is right. Just be prepared to cull a lot of the fry if I am right about your female.

For example I posted my double-tail female lily, her body has good length and her back is not arched.

Here is the fish with a red background to show her back . It's hard to see because of the clay pot.
