Yes, they are gorgeous and in one piece, the seller had separated the females which I didn't know about so I am very grateful for that he gave me this tiny one which can't be more than 3 months, arrghh its so exciting I will post pics later when their colours develop more :)

OMG, one of the females is MASSIVE, her fins are longer than any I have seen before, I think this maybe the one the seller thought was a male, everyone is getting along swimmingly so far

Haha, there's no ovipositor from what I can see and the breeder said the same, my mothers going shopping today so I'm hoping she can pick me up some plants since I only have a floating anacharis and some water wisteria, the bloody rosy barbs killed all my other plants :(

Separate the male from the females!

Do you have pictures of them?

Not yet, my camera batteries have died I have just found the culprit to all the fin nipping too, Tinie, she was the least aggressive fish in the tank or so I thought, she's even picking on the massive female :-O. Uch I'm gonna be staking out their tank tonight with a torch

These aren't the best pics but these are the females, the 1st betta is a deep red but as you can see from the pic she is very stressed and has lost her colour, the 2nd I have named Dotty as she has pink dots all over her, she also has some gold in her anal fin which the camera doesn't pick up because she refuses to keep still lol the 3rd is the female the breeder and myself thought was a male but she is infact a female I am open to name suggestions for the 1st female and 3rd
