I'd say it's a sub dominant eureka red peacock. I have one quite similar. Male for sure.

I think it's a female she is breeding in my male only tank and I noticed no spots on the anal fin ?! Does that mean female??

the one in pics is male, pretty sure. However what about the tail pictured in pic #2 that one could be female?

Well to my surprise she is matting with one of my big males. She must be some super coloured female of some kind. I know I have never seen a female that colourful before! So once she is holding ill know 100% for sure and I think it will be soon cause they're doing it as soon as the lights go out they dance!!

Males do a show of dominance that appears like they're mating. That is a male 100%
