Anyone know what type of Platy this is

Hi All....

I actually have 2 questions.

1. Does anyone know what type of platy this is? (My profile picture or )

2. Is it a male or female? (Im leaning towards male but unsure)

I'm getting a few new fish this weekend and would like to make sure I have a good ratio.

Thanks for any help answers and comments!

Looks like a male Tuxedo Platy.

That is either a Hi-Fin Varitus(red-tailed black they usually call ones in that color, though sometimes more than the tail is red), or a hi-fin tuxedo platy. I had a red and black variatus that looked just like that, minus the hi-fin. =) It's not an extreme hi-fin, so he's probably a mix or very young.
It looks female to me judging from the anal fin, but it's too smeared to tell for sure in that area. =)

Turning on the Aquarium lamp in the morning is MY cup of coffee.
