Totally forgot/not sure what this is, about 2". Strawberry? Crystal Ruby Red, pretty sure it's not a dragons blood, or a zebra right? Came out of a mixed peacock tank.

I thought it was a strawberry, but pictures of strawberry look a little different, I think I'll just have to wait until it grows up.

That's not good, I have an all male tank. They sold it too me as a male. I guess we'll see. The males don't chase it. In fact it does most of the chasing.

Could end up with some really funky hybrids maybe. We'll wait and see I guess.

What makes it a female? It's Anal fin is SUPER pointy, like a spear. I would never second guess it's a male, but obviously you know something I don't.

I'm not claiming to know it all by any means lol. The anal fin may be pointed but in the pic it just seems rather small to be as male IMO. can you post another pic?

By the way, I just reread that post. Sorry if it came across snarky, or sarcastic, I sincerely thought you had some info I didn't.

Not sure if it helps but he looks a lot like 2 that I have. They were labeled at the fish store as sunburst peacocks. I had 2 I got as juvies and both were male but looked different the one stayed an almost white color and the other one turned more orange colored. I wasn't sure if they were male either until I removed the dominant male from the tank and they squared off for dominance. I had to split them up. It's hard to see but the one is a definite orange color. Hope this helps. Click image for larger version
