Male or female?

Here is my baby betta. I don't really know how to tell the sex. I think he's around 10 weeks? Looks to be a crowntail. What do you think?

if you look under the betta, right by the two fins that hang down, there should be a little white dot. if there is one, then its a female

Yes Crowntail and looks to be a girl, I'm pretty sure I can see the ovaries ^_^

Pony: looking for the egg spot is not an accurate way of telling male or female, young males also have an imitator ovipositer (egg spot) while will disappear at maturity or soon after. Just more way's that Betta's confuse us. The only real way is to look for the ovaries, a triangular organ behind a circular stomach area.

Yes, it looks like a girl. Very cute baby.

And +1 Lilnaugrim.

Lol, I would love someone to tell me that my boy is a female because he has an egg spot...

Lol that's cute Feng! Yeah, I've had other's who have kept their egg spot passed maturity, just happens sometimes ^_^

I really wish egg spots were a reliable way to tell though, it would make things SOOOO much easier! But alas, they have to make everything difficult for us! lol
