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)


thats her(the red 1) well back end of, along with Pheobe my blue female guppy(very similar in shape.....hmmmmmm)


this is Hulk, male (completely diff body and tail shape)

HELP!!!!!!
