Difference in care between male and female?

This is probably a really stupid question...

Is there a difference in care between male and female bettas? I've only had male bettas, and was kind of wondering if there is something special about females. Is one easier to take care of than the other?

It's pretty much the same but females never really snag fins or bite them lol! My females are better jumpers...so I guess watch out for that. You may see them fill up with eggs, but they will normally either expel them (and sometimes eat/try to hatch them) or their body will reabsorb them. In rare cases they may get eggbound, but there's really nothing you can do for that so don't stress abotu it.

Thanks. I'm going to a pet store later...I wonder what I'll come back with. Though I shouldn't come back with anything at all! Even before I had fish I had to stop in the fish section and look at everything. :P

When I had a female it was the most aggressive.
