Red face Well i thought I was sure that she was female...

I need some expert opinions on whether Daisy is female or male. For the longest time I was sure she was female, but the other day I noticed she had a BEARD. I've had Daisy since August, I'm not exactly sure how old she is since I got her from petsmart. I'm guessing around a year and a half by now.

Female characteristics:
She has a prominent egg spot
Does not build bubble nests
Has appeared to get eggy from time to time, but she could just be bloated
Flares straight at an opponent
Shows breeding bars when placed near other males

Male characteristics:
Has a BEARD
Very long anal fin and her pectorals are pretty substantial too
Flares from the side sometimes

she's a female remember my girl lady amaya? she had very long fins pic:

and the egg spot is only seened in young males, breeding bars never appear on males, she would build a nest, so my opinion is she IS female

Definitely a female.. females have beards, but tend not to be as large as a male's.
She's a pretty one!
