I'm trying to figure out the sex of my albino paradise fish, though he is still a juvenile.

Any ideas?

I'm leaning towards a male because of the shape of the tail and body, but I've not seen enough juveniles to be able to say for sure.

when i bred paradise fish for a summer it was hard to tell even the adults apart other than by comparison to fin length. I'd guess male just because there always seems to be a better chance t it being so, but the fins look a little short for a male to me. I guess time will truly tell though.
