Would the dot be where the pelvic fins come out? Cause I see a lighter area there. Oh boy, he's a she I think. So it's possible she doesn't even have fin rot, and her fins are fully grown in? I thought since they had black edges she had fin rot but when she flares they look fine and healthy. She IS very, very shy. I guess that's normal for females too?

Yeah, she's definitely got an egg spot. Well she's a cute little girl. I'm glad I have her.

Some males have egg spots as well, its not always a sure sign of a female. In fact, Smore who I know for certain is a male has a little egg spot. Is there any way you could get a picture of him/her flaring...? Its difficult to tell the gender without seeing the ventral length and flare....

I'll try. Kilo isn't much into flaring. I tried the mirror and she/he ran and hid.

Ahh, yeah....Smore does that too. Some are just weird like that xD

You could always try a picture of another betta, or a colorful figurine, or even just some random objects

This is as close to a flare as I could get from her. Most of the time she seems to like staying clamped or neutral, as she is in the pic. At least you can kinda see her ventral fin size.

The second pic is of her 'egg spot' and gives a better indication of her ventral length. I had to go to Petco today cause she's got Ich and I looked at their other kings. None of them have an egg spot and their tails look longer. I was considering putting Whiskey or Tango in a cup outside her tank to see if I could interest her in a flare and then I thought, I don't really care if she's boy or girl and with her having ich I don't wanna stress her out. I'm not going to breed so I guess it doesn't much matter. I do enjoy the thought that I finally have a lil girl fish though. I call her puppy face.

Hes male :) I'm about 98% certain. The white spot is slightly different then on the females, much more similar to the one Smore has, and his ventrals are longer and shaped differently then a females ;)

Thanks Dragon! So he's a he. Well, sadly the girls no longer outnumber the boys in the house. Something drastic MUST be done!
