Try to get Androgyfish to flare. If there is a big full beard you have a boy.

Ovipositors don't ALWAYS mean a Betta is female. Lots of young males have them is well. I have a "girl" right now that keeps getting longer and longer fins, yet has an egg spot. I think "she" is actually a "he". I'd take your fish out of the sorority just to be sure.

Whether the betta in question is female or male, is irrelevant. If one fish is obviously a consistent bully to everyone in the tank, take him or her out of the tank. The fish in question has a body shape that appears female, but also has a long pointed anal fin like a short finned male plakat. That's my .02.

I agree! Don't let the fishes get stressed out.
