Platy Changing Genders?

faithapaul1

I’m new to tropical fish, but from the research I’ve done it seems as if my female platy has changed genders.

This was her a few weeks ago. I thought she was pregnant but no babies. The male platy I have and her were inseparable.

This is her today. Over the last week I haven’t seen the male and her together.

Was she just a late developing male? Does she still look like a female? I have no clue what’s going on!

It does look like a boy. When they are little, livebearers all have that girl fin. They mature into showing as a male. It may have just been too young to sex accurately. They don't change like clown fish though.
