Funny female fish is funny

So my female betta fish Kyu is really... odd.

I have a 6.5 gallon tank divided into two with Kyu and my other female, Nya on either side. When I first put them in, they flared at each other from their side of the divider but now don't mind one another as much.

Although Nya is pretty indifferent, Kyu is the opposite. Like, Kyu gets mating bars when she sees Nya and get stress stripes when she can't see Nya. Today I woke up to a bubble nest on Kyu's side of the tank.

Now I'm POSITIVE Kyu is female. She has a white egg spot under her belly. I know females making bubble nests aren't uncommon either.

I've also noticed she doesn't particularly care for males. I noticed this when I was treating her for her internal parasites when I first got her. Her hospital tank was beside Shota's while I was treating him for fin rot. Shota would go nuts and make ginormous bubble nests when he saw her and she wouldn't really pay any attention to him at all xD;

So um... Lesbian fish? O_o;;;

Just a funny little observation I wanted to share XD;;; I still love Kyu regardless of her sexual preferences :P

Haha, probably, the lesbian fish part is just a joke XD

Although if I had a decent camera and she stayed still for just two seconds, I'd take a picture of how vivid her bars are O_o;;

Maybe she is a plakat female. Some females just hate males: once I tried to spawn a red female to a halfmoon and they went at like two fighters.

That's pretty funny!

Edelweiss isn't really interested in Victor on the other side of the divider in my 15 gallon, but he sure is interested in her! I guess it's not that uncommon....but the fact that she bars up for another female is just plain goofy!
