I finally gave in and bought my 3rd (and final) betta :3 Since I have 2 boys, I decided on a female - and I always wanted to raise a baby. I finally fell in love with one and brought her home from work ^_^
She's hard to photograph, but she's like a green-blue iridescent female (looking like a VR) with blue, red-pink tail fin and red-pink pectoral fins. And she's around an inch long.
She's had vertical black lines on her since I've bought her. I've been told their stress lines, but would like more opinions about it. She's a very active and curious betta, and she's been eating great since I've gotten her so I don't think she'd be stressed. I've never had females before so I'm new to female betta behavior.
