Now today, day 16 (10/10)

Again, his color is disappearing. I now think Rain is a girl, because now that his/her body is part see-through, I believe I see ovaries. What do you guys think? Also, is s/he turning into a marble betta? I'm just scared that maybe this dramatic color change in such a short period of time could be a sign of stress or sickness. I've added the African dwarf frog this past Sunday and then added some java moss this past Monday. Tuesday is when I noticed the change. Could the frog or the moss be the cause of these changes? Rain and the frog are living peacefully together so far. Rain's behavior has not changed at all. So, is s/he just having a sort of color growth spurt? Okay, now pictures.

Yeah. I know. I hope she pays a visit to this thread. She originally said Rain was a male, but now I think she should take a look at these new pictures. Thanks for your opinion though. :)

Yeah. Rain is big enough now that I can actually see there's a fish in the tank from across the room.

How's it going with your frog? I originally named mine Mr. Storm, but it didn't fit, so now it's Michie. Have you found a good way to feed your frog yet?

Not yet. I left some blood worms in his plate last night and turned out all the lights. i read that ADF use there nose to find food so i thought that might be a good idea. I have no idea if he ate them or not but all 3 were gone by the morning. (Mars looked alittle bloated) Im still thinking of ideas now. tell me if you've figured out anything and vice versa

You can try to feed the frog with larger tweezer's unless he's shy. I'm pretty sure Michie is a boy but I'm definitely no expert at sexing frogs lol. I just remember something about there being pinkish colors under the armpits, like glands or something.

It's difficult to tell because in the last page of pictures it looked like it was just stomach but in these pictures it looks like there is the shape of the ovaries behind the stomach there. Can you get pictures with a light behind the tank and you take a picture from front so basically the light is looking at the camera? You should be able to see sort of through the fish to see if there is any shape of ovaries Beautiful pictures though! I wish I had gotten as nice of pictures of my little ones as you did of Rain!

And no, she's not sick, that's just marbling ^_^

Thank you, lilnaugrim! I won't be able to take pictures this weekend. I will try to get pictures of her with the light behind her on Monday, but that will be a challenge to line up the light & the camera with the little stinker. She never stops moving! A photoshop lasts for an hour or more to get those good pictures. There's a million more that aren't good. Lol.

I think Michie is a girl because the boys have the bumps under their arms, but I really have no clue. I don't see any. Anyways, it's Michie either way. Lol.

I'm glad I got lucky enough to get a marble. I would never have guessed Rain would turn out to be a marble! How exciting!

I don't know if you can do it or not, but with that hood I actually just let mind slide in the back so it's between the wall and the tank and that helps me so I don't have to hold the light and try to take a picture. It's also easier than a flashlight since it covers more space. But I can't tell if your tank is against a wall or not lol. You might be able to balance it between a heavy book or two and against the tank if it's not. Otherwise...look for a big flashlight I guess!

And yeah, totally know what you mean. I usually spend near two hours taking pictures of my fish and end up with 200+ photo's generally that I go through and pick out the best which usually ends up being maybe 5-10 photo's if I'm lucky XD

3 weeks! (10/15)

These shots were taken yesterday. At this rate, I feel that Rain is not going to have any color left! I took some pictures with light behind her as best as I could & a few in her water change cup, but I still don't think I got very good shots of possible ovaries. (Of course, if she was a guy, I would be trying to photograph something that's not there. lol. I think she's a girl though.) Oh, & please excuse the poo in some of these pictures.

Do I have a male or female on my hands? Someone tell me for 100%! It's killing me!!! Why do fish have to be so hard to sex?
