Ok so a couple of weeks ago I posted pics of my three new "females"
Pineapple/Luna has been really aggressive since we put her in the tank, she has torn the other girl's fins to pieces, and her fins just seem to be getting longer and longer, I think she may be a boy :/ HELP?!
I have posted a picture, sorry it isnt very good.I really need to know!!!she/he is in a breeding trap for now, until I know for certain, Please help!!!

very pretty coloring~ I agree with Sweeda, but don't boys have the to long fins in the front? Beards i think is what they are called...unless the picture is so blurry I can't see xD

Males only have beards when they flare. It doesn't show otherwise.

Hmm... she does sort of look like a male. Does (s)he have an eggspot? (S)he looks like a young VT or DeT, but I'm not an expert. I'd say (S)he's a male. :/

I think it's a young male delta. There's no way a fish with fins that long is a female. Also, the body shape is not feminine. Females usually have a rounded belly.

it does show even without flaring, but it is most likey a YOUNG male
because young males tend to look like females until there around 4 or 5 months (IMO) but yes it is a male (to me it does)

A tiny tiny one but it isnt very clear at all, I think (s)he is a male juvi?

Looks like one. What are you going to do with him? Probably need to re-name him. LOL.

I have a fry tank with baby platys in at the moment, they're big enough for him to leave them alone, I can put him in there untill I get him his own tank

Yes..he's a male juvi.

Also the only sure way to tell gender is to look for the egg spot. At his age, he shouldn't have one.
Anything that is there is literally barely there, it is that faint that at first I didn't spot it, it was only when I realised about the fins that it provoked me to look properly

I think he meant the ventral fins, which I don't see in the picture either....
