Such a cutie! And no its not weird that you connected. Thats how I get all my fish and get away with not buying one on a weekly basis. If we don't connect then I don't get the fish. Unless its a dream color or something. Even then if I connect with another I couldn't pass it up.

I haven't directly confronted her with a mirror, but she flares at her heater (has a mirror-like texture). I don't know what to do about that.
Females are known to flare, though.
Here's a picture of her ventrals as well. They are along, but they are very slender. Most pictures of male that I see have very wide ventrals.

Her ventrals are pretty girly. How big is her beard when she flares? Females have tiny beards.

You can't see it unless she's breathing or flaring, and when she is, it's small. I would describe it as "puffing up", but more like peeking out.
