Swordtail help

Is my pineapple swordtail a male or female? If it is a female, is it pregnant?

Male. Look at the gonopodium

Well it looks like a male but sword tails have the ability of changing sex.

That's highly doubtful a gonopodium can change into a non-gonopodium.

While sex changes are common in SW fish and in some cichlids this is not true with swords. BTW the "change" that they thought was happening was just late bloomer males.
