    I do have more pics floating around. This fish came from a tank full of females, and lived with other females until he/she grew too aggressive and was moved out. A white spot does show behind the ventral fins, though when Blue is in a mood, it seems to come and go. I've speculated on Blue's gender in several threads over the past eight months, but no one ever paid much attention or ventured an opinion

    If you have any flarey face pictures, that might help! :)

    The presence of an ovipositor does generally indicate female... although the rare male will have a white egg spot. They're tricky little buggers!

    Best I have. Blue has since been moved out of that tank, and doesn't really flare at anything right now

    IME bettas and other scaled fish dont seem able to absorb colored water. Likely it was just a very beautiful blue betta. And i actually have the blue stuff in the water. Its a stress coat stuff/water conditioner. Seachem Stress Coat turns water blue.

    Note: I never try to dye my fish, i just have experience with medications that dye water long term, and only my frogs have ever gotten dyed by it. (pink frogs from my mysteriously hot pink water dosed with tetracycline)
