Female Scarlet Badis?

Just got a couple badis. One looks like the typical male and other looks like a female. Any way to know its not just a juvenile male?

Seems to me to be a stressed out male based on its size relative to objects around it. Females are a noticeable amount smaller. It's also freaking impossible to find females. IDK where all these scarlet badis are coming from because as far as my experience goes a female scarlet badis does not exist.

Here are some better pics of them together. The pics don't show it very well but the female is noticeably smaller than the male.

All the females are at my LFS, right now. Their latest shipment was 15 of them, and only 2 were boys.

I have been looking at them online for weeks, and just bought a pair today for a nano tank.

Seriously, seriously doubt that. It's easier to find unicorns than it is to find female scarlet badis. I'd bet very good money that it is 13 stressed males and two dominate ones

I also just bought 4 scarlets. One is def. male then three others. The other three are smaller in size and have some vertical banding but are way less colorful. Does anyone have a picture of a definite female?

The first picture is a picture of my confirmed, (saw her spawning with my dominant male), female. The second pic is what I suspect to be a very submissive, young male.
