How aggressive is it? Warm up the tank to about 82F and observe it's aggression. Males will become very aggressive the warmer the temp is (closer to breeding conditions).

Tank is always at around 82, he/she is pretty peaceful, I know for a fact he/she is the dominant fish in the tank.

Judge, make your Betta flare. The beard will expose all. I am no expert on sexing Bettas but I can tell you that females do not have beards, usually have an egg spot, have thinner ventral fins than males, and their anal fins are different. They say a female will have a more rectangular anal fin whereas with a male, the anal fin will come more to a point.

If I can find you a link or picture, I will post it here.
