Okay, sorry but I wasn't getting many responses to my other thread, not that it was solely about this betta anyway but I really need to figure this out.
So on Saturday I bought a betta at Walmart because she didn't look to well and it was labeled as a female but you know how they can sometimes be mislabeled. Anyway this one has really confused me. In the picture below you can see (I know it's hard) but you can see a small ovipositer sticking out between it's ventrals.
Here it is flaring at my girl Mystique on the other side of the glass. (the walmart betta is floating in my 33 to keep the temp stable. But the thing with this picture is you can see how long the ventrals are. I mean, Mystique's ventrals grew pretty long as well but I know that these ones look a little long to be female. Also the body shape doesn't seem right.
Here is a pic with Mystique in it to show the sizes. Also they were both flaring at each other and doing the wiggle.
Here you can see Mystique's beard and the Walmart betta is about the same size, the ventrals don't look quite as long here and Mystique was very angry lol
And in this one you can see a bit of the ovipositer (and the wonderful wild type coloration)
So anyway, this one has thrown me for quite a loop and I don't know what to do with it. If it turns out to be a boy...well I'm not sure I have room for another tank here so I might adopt it out but we'll have time tell I guess. Thanks all.
