Male or female?

Post by Boodles010 » Thu Sep 12, 2019 17:36 pm

My dad has a bunch of guppies in his tank and we can't tell if this little one is a male or female, what do you think?
I took so, so many photos but the fish is so small and quick that this was the best I could get.ImageImageImage

Male
The tell tale sign is the anal fin, females have a fan/full shaped anal fin whereas males have a spike or gonopodium instead. This is the same for all the livebearers.

Enjoy your fish, shrimps and snails!
