Male Or Female?

    I don’t know why I can’t figure out the gender of one of my mollies. It’s usually so easy.

    I’m guessing male. Except the anal fin isn’t as separated from the body, as usual. And he doesn’t show interest in mating. And normally, that’s all mollies do. Plus, the larger body shape is throwing me off too.

    Originally, I thought this fish was for sure female. But now I’m seeing less of a fan shape fin and a male body part instead.

    Can you please confirm this is a male before I drive myself crazy?

    Looks like an immature male, but it's hard to see. Try not to look for a few days ;)

    Hard to tell in these pics. But the last 2 pics do suggest that it might be a male starting to show the male features...
