Gorgeous girl! She has blue eyes..Aaah pretty.
As I put in another post
`I'd still say a cambodian, if u look in the tail and color section of this forum it describe's cambodians as having a pale white-ish body. And these days u cannot really tell with store bought betta`s, there is soo many mixes and hybrids..`
So multi-colored cambodian.. just my opinion.

i love her blue eyes!
i think you might be right, but it seems odd to me that all the bettas my local pet shop gets in have the same colouration (flame's is a little different as she has a pale body, but the fins are the same.) the females are dark green with dark crimson fins and a turqouise sheen. similar to flame except without the cambodian type body. maybe their supplier crosses varieties :O

ok this isn't my betta, but it does show the colours that my first female betta displayed, and that all the other female bettas at the local pet shop display.
some wild betta in there, maybe mixed with green betta because the wild ones are more bluish? just a thought...how common is it to find wild-colouration bettas?

plakat male i suppose?
i have my doubts about my first betta being a female, actually. she always blew bubblenests :O and i think she flared if a gourami strayed into her territory. but maybe females do that too, i dont know.
wish i could find a picture of her, but i seem to have lost them all...i think her body was a bit more greenish rather than dark, like it appears in that picture.

woah...i had a male! i did wonder at one point, but then after seeing how colourful the females could be and reading somewhere that sometimes they blew bubblenests, i thought it was a 'she' after all.
so i guess i had a plakat male then...i'm lucky he didn't attack my pearl gouramis! he was very self contained and just hung around the top of the tank displaying and blowing bubbles. so cute...

i just looked into my betta tank and there was a little pile of bubbles clinging to the leaf of a fern. it looked just like the nests my old betta used to make. are you SURE females don't make bubblenests?
