Male or Female ?

Having a problem sexing this betta i bought from a lfs. It was sold to me as a female but i am not 100% sure as it has what appears to be the ovipositer but it is not white, more clear/see through. It is living with a group of females and hsn't blown any bubbles but i've only had it a week.

I would say female, although the body really looks like a male.

To be honest I can't tell. Some plakat males have "egg spots" which makes the breeders go crazy. For example I had what I thought was a female living with "her" siblings. I was positive she was female until I came home to find a fully flared male fighting with a brother.

I think it is a female, I had one a while ago and she was also a very buff girl. So I would not say her body size would be a sexing factor.
Beautiful reguardless!

Looks like a girl, I have a few manly looking girls myself, but they're definitely female. Could you get a picture of him/her flaring?

Well I noticed (probably a she) that she looks bloated.

The pic was taken just after feeding, she's a greedy girl and often looks like that at meal times. She goes back to normal after a while.
