You tell a Platies gender the same way you tell a mollie or guppies gender.

Sorry everyone. I'm gone. I can't use the forum anymore. My health issues are too much. I'll miss you all and I will return some day, just not on this account.

A male has a long thin modified anal fin called a gonopodium. The anal fin is the one right next to where the fish eliminates its waste. A female has a fan shaped or triangular shaped anal fin. Have a look at this pair of picture of similar fish.

Male


Female


These are very small fish but have the same characteristic shapes as mollies, guppies, swords and platies
