Male Or Female Platy?

    I got 3 new platies two days ago and have begun to notice one of the females is bullying the other female. As I've looked closer, I think the bully is a male. What do you think?

    It's difficult to tell, the bottom fin looks like it's either slightly clamped, or its a tucked up gonopodium. My female platys have two distinct 'fanned out' fins underneath. Do you have another picture at all?

    I had the same issue - I asked for 4 females only to realize later they gave me 3 males and 1 female. My bullying females were actually males. It looks like a male to me in the last pic.

    Going to LFS tomorrow to exchange him. In the meantime, he's in quarantine. :(
