I bought this......'betta' a few months ago, it was in a tank at the aquarium with about 20-30 females & listed as female, so i bought 4 including this one. I have put it in a tank which now has 15 females in it.
Recently alot of my females have been shredded to peices, can't work out why, & thought once you put 6 or more in a tank the need to be alpha phases out.
But this paticular 'GIRL' seems to be quite agressive, its the only one that flares alot at the others and seems protective over food etc.
I've had to remove some girls as the seem to have severe damaged fins, not suggesting its this one causing it.....
....but this evening, i took a good look at this one, its the only one out of all i believe to be girls thats totally pristine in shape reguarding fins and something about the shape of the head & face makes me wonder.... so the question is.......
Is this a BOY?????
the pictures not very good, i took it with my phone quickly before seperating it to a breeding net, i can take a better one if needed.
....oh & just in case, its the dark / fish im talking about.
