Don't know and can't say if it is the case here... but I do know that many people selling fish on AB use "stock" photos... not photos of the actual fish you are purchasing. Although, even when "stock" photos are used, the fish you receive are pretty close to the photo used. So this may be a case of where a "stock" photo was used and the actual betta in the photo may be male but looks close enough to the female that they are selling to use.

She looks completely female to me. Her ventral side starts out round and slopes upward towards her tail, characteristic of females. The dorsal is also positioned far back towards her tail, again indicative of a female. Sure she is flaring in pic2, but certain females just do.

Her super long finnage and sharp coloration is just misleading. If you rotate that first picture and look at it in black and white and cover up some of her finnage, her female shape becomes a lot more obvious.



The flaring in picture 2 also covers up her female body shape. The bright white scales make her look flat like a male, but her actual greyish body extends lower (behind her gill flaps).

I've got my pair in their separate 2.5 gallon tanks side-by-side with a cork board in between XD

They look exactly the same and just as amazing as they do in the photos that were used on Aquabid.

Also, my female is most definitely a female because she has an egg spot!!! Woot!
When I first picked them up and glanced at her all I could think was "Oh no...." but then I checked in the car and just now and she is definitely a girl. ^_^ She really does look a lot like a male plakat though, it's crazy.

Anyways, I'll post pictures tomorrow of the two of them in their new homes if anybody would like to see and I'll keep you all updated! ^_^

XD I plan on breeding them but I'm going on vacation in a week so I'll wait until a week or so after I get back and condition them to breed them. That way I won't be leaving the fry in my friends hands for a week.

Since this is my first time actually importing a pair from Thailand I decided to see how long other people were waiting to breed them since they go through shipping.

I was reading and a few people were saying that they would breed their pairs as soon as they arrived or, at the latest, a day later.

So, I was wondering, why do breeders do this? Also, should I be doing this or just wait a week while I condition?
