    Hi guys, long time no speak, been busy working. You may remember I ventured into female betta keeping at the end of last year in my 90 litre tank, turns out one of the bettas I bought has matured into a male, followed by a frantic trip to the LFS to pick up another tank(!) to separate him. he seems to be doing fine, thought I'd share a pic, he doesn't stay still much so all a but blury, also forgive his stripyness the flow on the filter was a bit strong for him, but I've sorted it now, trouble is he doesn't stay still long enough for a photo! He's metallic, possibly a wild type? If I'm wrong let me know. Ps the females are doing fine but aren't quite as pretty.

    Once I went to the store to get 3 female bettas. I know female flares too but one of them were ultra aggressive and were attacking the others. Some male bettas have short fin and I guess you have to look very closely to differentiate the genders. Body shape, the little dot in the under belly, and other characteristics.

    Huh. I'm not good at sexing bettas, so I have no idea. It looks female to me, unless its fins are still growing in

    He kinda looks like a traditional plakat beta. Plakats have that body style with the short fins. Beautiful beta.

    The ventrals look a bit long for a female so I'll say male for now. Any chance you can get a picture of it flaring?
