That looks sort of like a male to me, although it's hard to tell without a better picture.

It usually is, but not always.

Just by going with coloration and the body shape of the fish, I'd say male.

I will try to get a better picture later

If it matters the dot also changes shades from black to gray and gets bigger and smaller, but then again I am new

Its a male. Females aren't as brightly coloured unless injected with hormones - which make them sterile.

From pet stores they aren't likely to be as colorful, however many guppy lines now have females with intense color, however they normally do not have spots along the body.

I released hem/her back into the tank and my other guppy immediately started attacking him/her so I put he/she back in his/her breeder box. Why did my other guppy start attacking it? He didn’t do this befor.

Definitely still a male.

As far as the attacking, the guppy might see it as an intruder. Guppies (and other livebearers that are popular) can be extremely aggressive at times.

You could punish the guppy and keep it in the breeder box for a week in the tank, and he’ll stop eventually.
I separated the victim, so should I put the bully in it? Is that what you’re saying?
