Thanks for the comments and replies.
Its funny that these plakats are being so commonly mistaken for females when sent to the stores. I never really looked that good when I went to buy the supposed two females. This is the second time this has happened but the first time I knew that the betta at the time was a mistaken id on it and was pleased to find the great find at that time.
From now on when I go and look at bettas I am going to take my time and go through all the "supposed" females, one never knows now if you would find a treasure......
He is in my 46 gal tank with my two Discus and a school of neons and rummynoses. Do you think he will be fine in there for the long run?? He seems to eat anything and everything I feed the other fish which is a variety of flake, pellet and frozen foods.
I really need to take a better pic of him as those pics do not do him justice. The color is absolutley beautiful in the right light.
Glad I have him though, I have had 3 plakats in my time including him and really love them.
