It's occurred to me I could put him in the 'stable' mesh thing I made for that other little rogue guy. If Artemis makes a nest (like the other little guy did) then the mystery is solved =)

Ended up taking advantage of the water changes tonight to divide Tatsu's tank and add Artemis to it. If one of them blows bubbles or I see them flirting, I'll know. But I think it's a safe bet they're boys.

Here's an update of Styxx - used to be all darkw ith blue, now he's pale with blue


And ACheron, cuz he's a hottie!

And Acheron dancing for me in the sunlight <3



And of course, gender-bending Artemis

Are you able to use a torch (or flashlight as I keep getting pinged for that by the Americans) to see if you can't spot ovaries on Artemis? He/She looks to have a lighter coloured body so you should be able to make them out.

Here's a quote about the ovaries:

Quote:
If the betta is pale, look for the presence of ovaries. The ovaries are a roughly triangular mass behind the dark mass of the intestines.

Yeah. Depending how light the body of the fish is you can sometimes see them without a torch/flashlight.

My cambodian females have always had visible ovaries.
