Adorable little fishy!

Congratulations!

Looks like a girl to me.

Thanks! :)

What makes you think it is a girl? I am actually hoping it is female, I'd like to even out my numbers a bit, right now I have 6 males, 2 females and this unknown.

I'm going to let it settle in for a few weeks before I start trying to work out what sex it actually is :)

It's difficult to see on the pictures, but the "forearms" look thinner than what I'd expect of a male fish. Also on some pics the back end looks wider and rounder - so from above Cutie would look slightly triangular (round pony bottom) then smaller toward head.

What does the vent look like?

I had noticed that the pectoral fins do look quite thin. I didn't realise that how wide/round they are could indicate what sex they are, so thanks for that :) I haven't looked at the vent, I'll take a look later and if I'm unsure I'll try my best to get a picture :)
