Meet my newest little rescue - Pierogi! :)

Hey gang
Meet my newest little rescue betta - Pierogi! The Petco betta cup had poor little chomped-up Pierogi labeled as a plakat male but I'm not 100% sure on that.

Here's Pierogi still in the betta cup:








And here's Pierogi in my quarantine tank a few hours later, enjoying warm salted water and waiting for more bloodworms:

That definitely looks like a male to me, and more than likely a PK, but maybe a very young Delta? Looks like he's going to be a very pretty boy though! Good for you for giving him a home. :)

Thanks everyone! I'm terrible at identifying females from young male plakats. I don't see an eggspot, and while the anal fin looks more male, the dorsal and ventral fins to me look more female. lol

Have you gotten him/her to flare yet? You can always check for a beard if you're unsure. If it's a male he'd look something like the guy in my avi... but his beard is epic. lol what's funny is he's my youngest male, and he has the biggest beard.

Hey Metal
Nope, haven't been able to get little Pierogi to flare yet - he/she is extremely chill. Who's in your avatar - is that Azrael? He does have an epic beard lol.

Looks like a young male PK you got there! From the looks of it, he looks tiny! He should grow up and be gorgeous!
