Um...This *is* a female...Right?

That's what she was labeled, but we know how they are often mismarked...Or is it just a small male? a delta right? Bottom pic under natural sunlight.

Definitely a fermale - She has that streamlined look to her: See how her body thins out as it goes to the tail? males are generally more bulky.

Looks like a female VT to me! Doesn't look like a delta. :/
I'm about 99.9% sure.

I think she's a female, in the last pic she has the little white spot under her body that is a main characteristic of female bettas.

You have a beautiful veil tail girl. The thin short ventrals, streamlined body and ovidepositor ( white spot) are all good indicators of being female

She`s a girl. The white spot isn`t ick, it`s an ovipositor as already mentioned-usually how you can distinguish males from females, but sometimes males have false ones...
