Try to get Androgyfish to flare. If there is a big full beard you have a boy.

Ovipositors don't ALWAYS mean a Betta is female. Lots of young males have them is well. I have a "girl" right now that keeps getting longer and longer fins, yet has an egg spot. I think "she" is actually a "he". I'd take your fish out of the sorority just to be sure.

Sequin (m), Shortcake (f), Westley (m), and Sir Righty of Walton (m).

Whether the betta in question is female or male, is irrelevant. If one fish is obviously a consistent bully to everyone in the tank, take him or her out of the tank. The fish in question has a body shape that appears female, but also has a long pointed anal fin like a short finned male plakat. That's my .02.

I agree! Don't let the fishes get stressed out.
