The exact same thing happened to me. I bought a few females to start a sorority at Petco. The labels said female and the fish looked female to me. All pretty slim with short fins. About two weeks later the other girls fins are torn and they are showing stress stripes so I get them there own 20 long and leave the mean girl in the 20 high community. About a week later as I am searching for my pleco in the tank with the mean female, I lift up the hood to get a better view. What do I see? I very large hidden bubblenest. PEtco sold me a boy! He is now a fully developed Plakat male, not a girl lol.

Oh, wow!

I took Natalya out of the sorority. No more bubblenests.

He's chillin' in his own tank, now.

Wow that's quite a change! He definitely looked like a girl in the first picture.

What are you going to name him? Nathan? XD

btw this is random but Torat, the betta in your picture is breathtaking!

I think I'll change it to Nikita. I'll just make him Russian. Then it's kinda ironic. Because it goes for both boys and girls.

I didn't comment on this before, but lilchiwolf, that's awesome. I love the yellow on his fins, and he's so shiney.

And thank you, bahamut. That's my boy, Ulmo. His fins don't look that way anymore. He took to biting them and then got fin rot, but they're growing back! Slowly, slowly. A month and a half in quarantine, and they're sloooooooooowly comin' back. I appreciate it, though. He's a gorgeous little man with amazing personality.
