Hello, my daughter and I are new to this type of Betta. When we bought it, we were told that it is a King Halfmoon. It is about 4 inches long. I was pretty sure it is a male, but then I saw some pictures online of males and females and now I'm not so certain.
Our questions are these;
Is this a male or a female? How can you tell which sex it is? What is the life expectancy? Do you know where I can find King Halfmoons to purchase (if it is online that's fine)?
My daughter is 8 and would like to try to breed this fish.
It's a male. I guessing it came from Petco? The petco kings all look like that, at least the ones I've seen. Hold a mirror up to him and see if you can get him to flare.
Aqua Bid is the only other place I've seen selling large bettas. On there they are called "giants".
I expect to pass through this world but once; any good thing therefore that I can do, or any kindness that I can show to any fellow creature, let me do it now; let me not defer or neglect it, for I shall not pass this way again.
