Oh, that's such a relief! Thank you all for the help. :)


Oh, whoops. Other people said male and I didn't refresh in time. Hm. I just took some more pictures, but they're still not very good shots. I can try again in the morning with better lighting.

Also, I tried to look for the 'ovidepositor', but I couldn't see it. Is it very obvious, or something I would easily miss?

Ovipositer:

Who am I? Well I am a Junior Member of the International Betta Congress and a breeder of white HMPKs, red dragon HMPKs, black/red dragon HMPKs, metallic multi HMPKs, blue masked HMPKs, and now multi color HMs. Soon to add black HMs. I will be showing in New Breeder class in fall of 2012.

I was able to find the ovidepositors on my other bettas... but not this one. So, now I'm calling him(maybe her?) 'Demon.'

Here's a couple other pictures (sorry, I am REALLY bad with a camera):

Demon's coloring in natural light

The only other question I have is what kind of betta is Demon? I fell in love with crowntails immediately and have only a little knowledge about the other kinds of bettas.

Looks to be a plakat (short fin) male to me.

It's really hard to tell... It looks kind of like a young male...
