He's SO unique :) I've never seen such coloration before. You must be so proud!

I hope you dont mind.... but I took a previous picture of Chameleon and compared it with one of mine that looked most similar in HOPES I can discover it's gender.

The betta I have listed below... is still unnamed... So I'll just call it ONE for now. One is aggressive... has started getting VERY territorial, and nips and chases the rest of the bunch. I had to remove One today. One has had the tips of its pectoral fins nipped off in retaliation. So keep in mind they SHOULD be longer than they appear.
Does One appear to be male? Yes One does have an egg spot

Personally, I think One could be female. The body shape is more round, overall (not just a fat belly from eating too much) and the anal fin is less angular. Not that females can't have angular anal fins but chameleons anal really comes to a point at the end... so, that is all I am basing it off of. However, the black fire spawn mother had a very long pointed anal, so I think that's why some of the fry have longer anals than caudal er... it extends out more... I have 1 female (fatty) who has a longer anal and was more aggressive b4 I put her in a sorority, but now she is in the lower ranks I think.... anyway, don't know if that helps at all.

I would love to see pix of your others to see how they've grown... but no pressure.

The glowy floating fish looks like his conscience. >.< keehee

I've heard from other members that males can have the oviposter too. -_- like, seriously? So, finnage and body shape is another way to determine gender. Post a pic, lets see what we think!

Heres some updated pics of my kids... First 2 are my girls, which some are siblings of Chameleon and some are from Thailand and some are from petco. :)

The dark bodied & red finned ones/black one/white with black are siblings of Chameleon- The yellow/black, orange, pinkish, and solid yellow are not. :)

I'm blown away!!! They're growing up so fast.
Aviator's fins are to die for... and Chameleon is getting more handsome every day!

The girls are looking PERFECT. Love the colors of all the girls.
