I know all my females are females because they've all mated at one time or another.... :) pretty easy to tell that way.

I've been able to successfully tell gender by the shape of the face...males have thicker gill plates and tighter jaws.

I can usually just look at the face and be able to tell. Also the larger the fry the better chance that it's a male.

True but not all males are bigger than females.

according to that article bettas can change their sex but they said they were able to get them to do this by giving them doses of testosterone and they were injected with it so this could only happen with females meaning unless for some reason their was a way for females in a sorority to receive doses of testosterone they will stay female
