Yet Another Betta Of Ambiguous Nature

So I was picking up some things for my kitteh's birthday purrty :D
And ... it's sort of inevitable that I went to check out the bettas. Way wayyy in the back of the shelf there was this little one. I'm leaning strongly in that it's a girlie but her tail and fins are confusing. Could she be a delta?

I'm planning to put her in the sorority as soon as I can.

She might be a Half Moon. I see an egg spot and her fins despite being long scream female. (I saw a cambodian at Walmart who's fins were as long as hers.)

I would hold up a mirror to her and see if she flares though. If she reacts like my boy did to seeing his reflection (Rip.Maim.Kill behavior) then she might be a he.

You can see her ovaries in the last picture. The white triangular shape just under her scales. She looks like she has more than 2 ray branchings so she's not a VT or PK.. possibly from delta or hm lines.

She flared when I placed her in an isolation box in the sorority tank, and she has four rays. She has a little feminine beard and seems to be quite aggressive ... I'm not sure now if I'll put her into the sorority. I can always make room for another tank.

I have a female that looks similar to your new little girl.
I think she is a female. You can see the ovidepositer in the last picture.
