Not sure WHAT your betta is? post pic & ask here (pic heavey)

I have gotten a few bettas from LPSs that have been labeled wrong, and in case the the girl pictured below, sold simply as 'female betta'. I've also seen lots of other people with the same problem. Instead of starting a new thread every time I get a 'what are you' betta I thought it'd be better to have 1 for them all.

The last time I posted a question like this is was just trying to figure out the sex of my EE that I bought as a female VT. This time I have a big girl (2" body), twice the size of all my other ladies & no clue what she is. I've had her a few weeks, but been unable to get halfway decent pics until today. Can any of you tell me what she might be?

Pandora (also pictured: red VT - Lofin, purple VT - Amor, teal VT - Freya)

lol, I think I got rather lucky with Pandora. I believe we've decided he's a Petco "king" betta male. Get's along rather well in my sorority for a boy. I paid $3.99 for Pandora, but I think the Elephant Ear I got for $2.69 (marked as a female VT) was better deal financially.

It took forever to get a good pic of Pandora. They would never show the color the way it really is. I turned the flash on today & finally got the color to show. Here's one of the last pics I got of her & it look like a totally different fish.

because I bought him as a female Matt. Today was the first time I was able to get decent pics and ask people with more knowledge what they though.

Most passive male betta I have ever know. He minds his own business unless one the the girls bug him, then he flares and chases for a couple seconds before going his own way.

I think Matt means that you found out he is a he and left him there still. It's not going to work. I'd take him out and get him his own tank

I would be concerned about keeping him long term in the sorority if Pandora is indeed a male. I know I am not the only one who has had bad experiences with males in sororities. My very passive male ended up getting attacked by the females after a year of living in with them. The injuries were severe enough he died a week later.

Bettas can be very unpredictable and the consequences can be swift and devastating.

Just letting you know as I have seen a couple of members on here being very flippant about males in sororities and it is not something I recommend.
