i would say its a red variegated platy...they tend to be abit more slender through the body then the platy's...x

hello and welcome.
looks like a wag tail to me too,however i've always been pretty pants at fish ID.
it's a platy for sure,that i do know.i think it's a female too.

it is a red wag platy.. i thought female as well however if you look at the forward portion of the anal fin it does look like a gondoponium ... to clarify if the anal fin coned or open and broad?? coned = male , open and broad = Female
WELCOME btw!!!!!!!!!!!1 lol
