Stumped on gender

I picked this little pineapple "lady" at petsmart today. I had the feeling that "she" was mislabled - the store that I went to is not great, so her cup was filthy and she was shoved in the corner behind everyone else. S/he's got a bit of fungus on her fins so I will be treating her asap.

Usually I'm pretty good with gender but ....

Long finned VT female or young VT male? I can't see an eggspot or any ovaries yet. S/he flares like a male - big and showy, but with a small beard. If it's a lady s/he'll go into the sorority, male, I'm still keeping him. :)

Time will tell!









I am trying to get pics of the belly to see if I can find any eggspot. S/he's pretty active :)

Thought so! The store is notorious for mislabelling the bettas.

No worries! He does seem feminine but it's definitely boy ^_^ no ovaries, not even a faint slight of them lol. But his overall appearance does look a bit feminine so I can see where they'd be confused too :)
