Don't feel bad at all! We were all there at some point. The point is you learn and move on and one day down the road another person shows up on the forum in your situation and then you have a chance to pass on the experience you've gained from other members :)

That happens all the time! Even people who've been here for a while sometimes get a female, thinking it's a male. :) Don't feel bad. Welcome to the forum!

It may still be a female, hard to say. Do you have a pic you can post here of both of them? I had a female VT who I SWORE was a male, until I saw her releasing eggs and eating them >.> Just so you know, even if the fish turn out to be both females, I would separate them unless you want to have a sorority. With just the 2 of them they will continually fight and attack each other, but with say, 3 more females it will cut down on the aggression.

Good luck!

So, do females release unfertile eggs regularly, or does a male usually need to squeeze the eggs out? I am just curious as to if I should be keeping an eye out for little eggs. XD

Thanks Panthera. :) I separated them yesterday, and they seem much happier. I'd keep them together with more females, but I don't have the room to get a big enough tank for three or more fish at the moment. I would love to in the future, though.
I have pictures posted on http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=63739 if you are interested in helping with the genders.
THANKS! :)

Thanks everyone! I've taken more pictures of my fish, and people are now saying she is a female. Lets hope she stays a female! LOL

I'm glad I am not the only one who has made mistakes with this!

I'd say she's a female - notice that she doesn't open her gill covers to about 90* (males do). Plus the body shape .... (sorry I can't explain this part - only that it looks female to me).
She is a great looking long finned betta.
