Male or Female Betta?

This is Owl. I've had "her" since June or July. I know that Owl is a plakat for sure. I always thought that "she" was a female, so I decided to put "her" in my 20gL with my other two female bettas. They got terrorized. Owl shows no signs of an ovipostor, creates bubblenests frequently, and flares a lot. What do you guys think?

This is when I first got Owl


A few months ago


A week ago ("she" was sizing up Apocalyptica)

Thanks! Still, I'm currently keeping him in a big breeder net in the 20gL, because I have a lack of space right now. I don't want to put Owl in a 1g bowl that I have. Plus, I don't have an extra heater.

No I agree he is better off where he is with the heater.

I think he is a male. I have a male Plakat who looks similar. Very pretty, but somewhat tempermental. At least Owl is kind of a universal name :)

Yep. All my names are universal. I don't like gender specific names. You can see the name if all my bettas in my sig too. xD
