These fish are unpredictable. At any time he could turn on your girls or vice versa. And ru, you are the same person who attacked someone for their living conditions, are you not? We would all appreciate it if you would post responses to the op and not unrelated and rude posts. Thank you!

Please don't deflect attention from your own condescending rudeness. OP was not asking for advice about males and females together. She just wanted to know what type. Please take your own advice. Thank you!

lol, yep. taking the sweater off.

She never once said she was going to keep them together permanently. Since he was originally thought to be a she, it was just noted that he was awful passive with the other females.

It's just a mistake in making an assumption, that's all. It's the internet, it happens. Now... back on topic

I know females and males plakats (and apparently kings) are sometimes confused... but I do wonder if females ever have looong tails that really throw people off and make them think she is a he?

Now that you mention it, all of justmel's females look like they have long fins, longer than the male's

I have seen some males and female where I really wondered if the store got it right. You could put his new tank directly next to them so they can still see each other or put a divider in.

First I want to thank everyone for their advice on what to do with Pan(dora). I am still learning & while I had already decided to take Pan out and break up my sorority until I have enough definite females (I've now got 2 'females' form LPSs) I do appreciate everyone opinion and advice on the matter.

Second, @ Matt & RU - RU, thank you for being concerned that I may have been offended by Matt's first reply, but I was not. I know Matt from here & while he might be a bit blunt at times he means the best.

Third - tail length. I think the difference you see in my pics is because Pan is a PK and the females are VT's. While I've never seen a females VT with a super long tail I have never seen them as short as a PK's tail either.

Question Betta imbellis

What is the chance this pair could be betta imbellis? My LPS knows less than nothing about bettas (and doesn't want to learn) and I bought both of these labeled as 'female betta'. I already know that they got 1 wrong & I have 1 male & 1 female. As explain earlier, the male spent a couple weeks in my sorority before I figured out she was a he. In that time there was NO fighting involving him. If one of the girls bugged him to much he'd flare and chase her off, but once she moved away her went right back to just sitting there. Both Pan and Bellona are very shy & gentle. I've recently moved Pan to a location with less light and he's warmed up a bit and comes to see me at feeding times instead of hiding. Bellona is nearly 3x larger than any of the other females in my sorority, but she has no problem backing down from any female that flares at her. I haven't gotten Pan to flare at another male either. I don't know what else to say about their personality, so if you have questions ask. The first pics here are Pan, the second set is Bellona.

That's not an imbellis. Just a wild-coloured splendens. Imbellis and most wild bettas are a lot snakier looking through the body among other things.
