Question Sold to me as a female, is it?





Another question. I seem a orange betta the other day, it was my first time ever seeing a full orange betta. Is this color not as common?

Looks to be a female, does it have a white/egg spot near its stomach? Young bettas can have eggspots but I think this betta is already grown. Looks really pretty, too. Orange bettas aren't common, but they aren't rare either. I have a cambodian with orange fins, and my other female is a bit pale orange as well.

She does in fact have the spot but I also noticed bubbles in her tank. They are not grouped together but more around the edges.

Bubblenests don't always mean they're a boy. Some females make nests and put unfertilized eggs in them and pretend to have kids. Of course, they won't hatch, though. If there's a spot, it's definitely a girl. :D

My girl makes small bubble nests around the edge of her tank, and when she gets eggy, she makes random small ones all over the tank.
My male is very specific where he makes his, and he makes them much larger than hers.
