Talking I.T. Gender unknown...

Here's my newest little one, I.T. For now I'm saying it's a male (fingers crossed), despite the fact that signs are pointing towards female. I got him as a juvenile at a LPS. He's a locally bred plakat.

Any ideas on the gender? He does have an egg spot, but I know that sometimes juvenile males have those. I've tried getting him to flare at a mirror, but that seems to confuse him. He's either flaring his tail but not his gills, or the other way around. He's currently around 4-5 months old, according to the guy at the shop.

And please ignore the spots on my fishtank...

Looks female to me, but someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Truthfully, I'm fairly certain it's a female. The juvenile bettas were all in a tank together at the store, so the guy was just scooping them out into a betta cup and saying 'how bout this one?'. Little critters can swim real fast...

He told me if it turns out to be a female to bring her back and get a male, but I'll most likely be too attached by then. :)
