Exclamation Is she really a he!? Help!

So I recently moved my small betta sorority into their new 30 gallon tank. Just now I saw two of my "females" doing a circular dance and tangle up together. Then some eggs dropped. O.O That's what I'm assuming they are anyway...little white balls. I think my one female is male! But "he's" been living with the other 6 girls peacefully for almost 6 months now. I'm so confused!
I don't have any really recent pictures, but here's Twilight...




So...is my girl a boy??? Jeez.

If you see a little white spot right underneath the chin area than Twilight is a girl. If not than Twilight is a boy. In the picture you presented I don't see a eggspot do theoretically Twilight is a male.

So I got a good look under Twilight and "she" is indeed a male. There is no sign of an eggspot whatsoever. So my question now is...can he stay with the females? o.o;; I mean, he's been with them for 6 months and I haven't had any problems. Or is it best to separate him? He was my favorite female!!! LOL!

See, that's what I thought too. But I can't see an eggspot and what's with the whole mating dance? o.o So confusing!

u cant see the eggspot till she is ready to lay their eggs, eggs will be absorbed back to body if no eggs are lay! try putting her in a small container, with another male one outside swimming around her and displaying his flare!!
