Yeah.. that picture and one where her ventrals are down made me think male. Especially if she/he is overly "flarey".

Also female betta's dorsal fins are usually further up on their spine.

Oh, I didn't notice that!
But I have a male plakat and his anal fin is much longer... but I guess that doesn't really mean anything. However, she does flare a little more than Hattie, so.. Hmm. I'm confused lol. Her tail fin does like a bit like my male PK's, though.
Are you guys sure Leela is actually a guy?

Not a 100%.. more pictures would help.. especially flaring pics. But my gut instinct says male.

i agree with 1fish2fish she /he kinda looks A LOT more like a male than a female but it is kinda confusing for more of a male ??????????? lol okay lets not confuse me here but ill be the bystander and see what the out come of this is:D

Hey bettaslave what do you want it to be more of a female or male???

if it is a male are you going to change the name? lol

That was my thought when I was looking through the photos too... Looks like a male PK to me. :)

Beautiful fish though!

Hmmm... Bettalover, I'm not sure. "She's" a little too tough to be a female... but I will probably change his/her name.
Doggyhog- Yep, I'm starting to believe it! He's flaring so fiercely, and much more than Hattie.

Alright. I'm just uploading some..

Bettalover, I've seen her, she's soo cute!!
BUMP-
I don't know if these are of any help or not, he/she moves sooooo fast! I can't get any pics of him/her up front, but he/she does look more like a male now that you point it out! Pictures-

Yeah.. see that beard coming down as he flares?.. Its clear so its hard to see but females don't have the beard. Plus I don't see an ovipositor.. although males can have those too so its not a deciding factor.

You could always call him "Lee"
