My halfmoon beta

Hi, I'm new here and wanted to share my beta. I don't know a whole lot about them so I'm hoping to learn lots here. I believe this is a female as tjat is what I was told. I have no name for her yet so feel free to help me out on that

That's a very long-finned female if it is. I think it's probably more likely a male. Check between the ventral fins (those would be the two long fins hanging down beneath the fish just behind the gills) for a small white spot. If there's a white spot there, it's female, if not it's a male.

And welcome to Fish Forum!
