How to pick a male baby betta?
Title says it all.
If I go to petco, what are some tricks to determine male from female out of their baby betta selection?
Does anyone have pictures of a clear sex difference at that young of age?
I know the basics, ventral length, beard, and egg spot......but their babies are normally too small to see egg spots on, too young to flare, and every time I grab the baby with the longest ventrals that is in a tail type I want, it still ends up being female.
I just really want to see their fins grow for future referance on HM spawns. And because I think juvies with half-length fins are sooo cute! (I have a blue grizzle HM juvie that is just to die for with his stubby fins!)
Can someone help me?
