Mister or Miss Bubbles?

I am very confused right now of what gender my betta fish is! He/she is currently very sick right now, and saught help in the help forum. Everyone was very helpful! Thank you everyone! However, everyone is saying my betta fish is a male, not a female like I thought. I got him/her about 3 months ago.


Him/her being healthy.


Him/her being a sad sick betta fish. Notice the white dot underneath the body.


So what do you think?

I agree, my female crowntails' fins are not as long as yours (even with the fin rot)

Here's a male crowntail plakat (short fin), although your little one seemed to have fins that were still longer than this guys. I'm leaning towards your little one being a guy... but I'm bad with these things and don't have enough experience with females to confidently know the difference. XD

@Abby - What do you mean by a beard... google isn't really telling me. :( And, he/she does have a good sized belly... He or she, is just very sick right now. If you tell me what angle would be best to take a picture I'll take one for ya :)!

When the males flare they get a full beard below their chin, like this http://webspace.ship.edu/gspaul/anim...e/DSC_0893.JPG

I hope your little guy/girl is doing better. <3
