In live bearing fishes the anal fin is a long spike shaped fin that is held close to the body, the female anal fin is shorter and pair shaped, mostly held open. I will search out a few links of actual fish to show you the difference between male/female to make it easier to check your own fish (know what you're looking for). Will be back shortly with links for you.
