male or female??
 
ok so now im confused!!! i got my guppy Scarlet not too long ago, shes a happy healthy lil fishy! i noticed a while ago that although she has a fanned anal fin(like females do) that it was slightly elongated? tonight i was watching her and realised she was flirting with another female? i looked closer and saw her anal fin acting like a gonopodium(found on the males)? now im confused as she has a larger body than a male and has a female fan shaped tail, along with wat i thought was a gravid spot!!!! also her anal fin/gonopodium, sits slightly further back than it does on a male. is it possible for a fish to b hermaphrodite?!!!!!! im laughing at myself writing this!!(sounds so stupid) she looks nothing like my male and if she is a he how comes she has survived wen all other males have been bulled to death by Hulk(single male that hates any competition)
