This is a female red platy correct?

I just don't know if her fins a but messed up and she's female or if she is actually a male because she picks on my male platy a LOT

Ok cool because she is picking on my male but I just wanted to make sure that wasn't some form of same sex aggression. My male isn't looking to good tho, he is sitting at the aquarium bottom just moving enough to stay in place.

If she keeps hitting him, sometimes, that means they're mating. So there's a forewarning.

Good that's exactly what I was hoping for. I breed a variety of platys so id like the red platys to get it right to

I wasn't sure if her fin was torn or if she was a male but the fin has no curve like the beginning of a gonopodium. So I think it's a female now
