Have you tried online? Having a master kit is an important part of raising a Betta fish. Not having one would be like never taking your dog to the vet. You can buy them on Amazon for $20 and other websites for cheaper sometimes.

You can buy your bottles one by one but you should hold off on breeding until you can get one. They have them on amazon.com $20.00 (I found this out too late). I bought my bottles one by one as they are also $50.00 where I live and I had to drive pretty far to find a master kit by then I had bought what I could find nearby. You can also take your water to the petstore for testing it seems like most places offer that. Have you thought about what you will do with the extra fish if you breed?

Breeding does need a lot of space and a LOT of money. Its not a hobby like model airplanes since it does deal with living creatures, so it is good that you are not going to go forth with it if you recognize your situation does not call for it.

Either way, males and females should never be placed together unless for breeding.

everyone went off on the test kits and didn't answer their original question.

They have gotten eggs from this fish before, so at least at some point, this fish was female.

Not every female is always showing an ovipositor, we had one that didn't show her's for a few months, she was definitely a girl though.

There's also a couple of users on here with females with beards. Try posting a couple of clear pictures of her, and hopefully someone will be able to help you.

(apparently if they're over exposed to testosterone, they will turn male, but this was done in a laboratory, and if memory serves, pretty high doses)
