So I was doing a water change on my 20g & I spotted this little white fleck on Piranha that looks really suspicious.

I actually have a video trying to catch it for you guys, if you look really closely you can see it. It looks like an ovipositor. But I wasn't certain, because.. I mean, look at Piranha's feelers. They're ~really~ long. And he/she is a plakat so it's hard to tell by the fins. The cup said male, too. He/she has been in an all male tank for months.

What do you guys think?

Some males can actually have "eggspots", normally only young ones though
Can you get a picture of him flaring?

well besides the eggspot his/her's beard should prove it :) if it is big it's a male if it is small it's female, the beard show's very noticeably on males without flaring, the black area under the gills is the beard if you don't know ;-)
