I've finally determined that mine is a female. I bought a male, and it turns out she's a girl. It's not always super easy to tell. Some females have long flowing fins, but not plakats, there's are always short both male and female. If you ever see a white spot (egg spot) between the ventral fins and anal fins, she is most likely a female, but not necessarily, some young males get it too.

It's a male, the fins give it away. I think it's a plakat male. Beautiful fish though and plakats are nice fish.

i put the purplish color betta next to a male for a couple of days and it started to make a bubble nest, i'm pretty sure its a bubble nest since it's all over the bowl
OH and he/she doesn't flare at all, is that bad or good?
And since she/he doesnt flare i cant get a pic of her ventral fin in a down position without hurting the fish

Did you determine which sex your fish turned out to be?
