She's not a female-I'm positive that that's a male betta, and a very handsome one at that. Some boys just don't flare, just like how some females do flare...flaring isn't really a good way to determine the sex imo.

Definitely a male, and an amazing one at that. Don't return her, because thats a him lol.

I could never return a Betta anyway, no matter what the gender was. I always feel to horrible about putting them back in death cups xD That's why I have a guy with what seems to be permanent SBD.

My cellophane betta was so young when I got him, he didn't flare or build bubble nests, he's now 4 x the size, absolutely stunning and is my favorite guy! He's non-aggressive.
I agree if you return him it's likely death sentence :(

That is definitely 110% a male. You can tell by the body shape and the ventral fins. Females have much shorter ventral fins. WHY would you return it? Even if it was a female, it is absolutely gorgeous. Here is my female = notice her body shape and tiny ventral fins:

Since my betta has gotten accustomed to his new home, he hasn't been very nice to Mr. Shrimp. My betta still hasn't flared when "he" sees another betta....SO WEIRD!!!

Also a little off topic...is there anyway I can embed my videos as a post??? Does anyone know the codes?

He flared in he vid! He didn't show his beard but he still flared lol. I so want to steal him! Love how the sand and decor matches him. Do you have a full tank shot? It looks beautiful.

What a pretty boy! I don't think you'll have the ghost shrimp for too much longer haha... Oh and fyi, my DT didn't flare for the longest time, even with another male housed next to him. He just started in the last couple weeks :)
