Can you post a recent photo? I can determine gender very easily.

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.

Here's one that shows the fin length pretty well.
I just took some others, so I'll upload soon.

Actually I just realised I DO (or I did :( )have a gender bending fish!He/She is a tetra!I didn't think of Him/Her because its hard to tell the difference anyway lol (tetras dont like you to know much about them) He/She is called shadow, I never new He was a she until I took a photo down to the fish shop when she seemed ill, the guy there noticed I was calling her shadow and not too kindly pointed out he was a she, I never really stopped thinking she was a he, because to me she was just my shadow.She died a couple of months back :( (epidemics suck) (actually saying that so does my memory)

Just seen the picture, if I'm honest to me she looks like one of my female veiltail's sapphire did (also died in my epidemic :( ) (same sort of length fins) but she looks like she has the spade tail gene?I'm no expert but maybe one of the older members might be able to clarify?

It's a female.

Just because I don't type with candy and rainbows doesn't mean I'm being mean.
