My females all flare like the big boys......Can you get a photo of her for me?

This is a female bred by me.....Most people think she is a male.....She can flare better than some of my show males lol

I have seen juvenile males bar up in submission to avoid a fight. Although it is not officially documented, most breeders know that female bettas are capable of changing sex. If they have bred, they will always be female. I recently talked to Leo Buss about this.

I agree Dragonlady.....Anything is possible......I'm saying female....I bred the girl and there was no doubt in my mind when I sent her she was a she......If she does turn male she better be a darn nice one lol

Here is one of my Best in Show females below....She made her own bubble nest, dropped her eggs and tended to the nest......Of course nothing hatched......She has 8 week old babies right now..

That's makes me hopeful. I'm just worried because I've had issues with "females" beofre. Like last year I had a gold "female"....two months later "she" spawned with a female and I got fry....I'm a miracle worker :P

Maybe she'll fatten up during conditioning? I don't have my phone so no pics till morning :(

I photograph most every detail.....I will eventually write a book hopefully with the help of some of the old time breeders.......

Mr Vamp, just conditioner her and try again......If she indeed is a male you'll have a credit with me for another girl.....

K thanks Karen! I have a PK girl right now who never showed her egg spot and now, 2 months later it's visible. It might be because she's new around here and is getting used to things.

Wow, I didn't know that females who have not been bred can turn into males! Thanks for the info, Dragonlady!

I think writing a book on bettas is a great idea! I would definitely buy a copy. :)
I am so glad to see our breeding section growing. For a long time we didn't have anyone who could give good advice about breeding. Sure, people can get info from a book but I'd rather get info and advice from someone who has experience.
