It's almost impossible to tell when they're really stressed out, but amazing how obvious it becomes when they're colored up. The females do tend to be even more dull when washed out and have kind of a straighter, narrower body than the males do.

What kind of fish store is it? Hopefully they'll work with you on this. And how much are they asking per fish?

It's a decent fish store with fairly knowledgeable employees... They seem like they would help sex them but i never trust pet store workers. They are asking 8$ per fish.

Even I could tell there were at least two obvious males... I just need to be able to get a female.

At lest they're not gouging you on the price, I guess the best way to go is one of the obvious males, then try topick out the skinniest fish, as it'll probably be a female.

Gorgeous stiktos :)

I'm all moved. My adults are still in jars awaiting tank planting, which I plant to get done by tomorrow. The babies have always had no substrate so I just plopped them into their tank with all of the plants I saved. About 1/4 of the water is their old water. I only moved 10 blocks from where I was before so I'm pretty sure the water is exactly the same.

I had to dump 4 tanks so I lost all my snails. I'm trying to get some more. The MTS were such useful critters, I don't think I'd ever have a planted tank without them.

I've set up the tanks in front of a window so they get tons of natural light, I'll probably put one of my plant lights over the lower one because it gets a little less light. Hopefully I won't have algae problems.

I'm just getting into Wild Bettas and I've looked all over for info and I couldn't find much, but that's until I found this thread, I think I learned more in 20 minutes here than I ever did for weeks browsing the internet
