hmmmmmmm.... can you get a pic of her/him in bright light? I just learned from that sexing Bettas link what the female organs look like =D

Some females build bubblenest's. Some flare at mirrors. This could be coincidence, but an eggy female? And the body shape just screams male to me.

If guppies are jewels, than Bettas must be rainbows

Yeah, you have a little boy there, judging by body shape and behaviour.

Flaring Pictures

Okay, I managed to get some decent pictures of Kate(?) flaring by putting her next to Oberon. (They're both in QT containers so don't worry about the size of their tanks, they are not in their real homes)
So can these help anyone clear up the mystery of "Androgy-fish"?

Male....females "beards" don't extend that much.

Thanks. I was thinking that was the case... Naughty pet store calling "Androgy-fish" a girl. (I guess we will have to think of something new to call him... Katarina is not very approiate and may give him a complex. lol)
