Those are all beautiful, but I really love the color on the last one! I adore female bettas, I think they have such awesome personalities!

Their general body shape tells me they are ladies, not to mention the big white egg spot on their bellies! Even the dragon pk's fins and body..Just doesn't look like a boy.

The ladies with the longer fins are more obviously girls when you consider these are probably the siblings of those insanely huge finned male halfmoons!

Other people can probably explain the difference better.

Aha! Thank you. The egg spot is a giveaway. It probably takes more experience than I have to make the distinction by body shape alone, but I'm beginning to see your point.

:D I'll show pictures of pairs, in case anyone else is interested in knowing the difference.

Halfmoons..easy usually..just look at those fins! haha! But you can also see that big thick body the lady has, as opposed to the streamlined male body


Female:

Short finned male:


(Greentea, hope you don't mind me borrowing your pictures as another example!)





:D the short finned ones are hard to see at first, but it makes sense after a while. Though of course, with very young fish it can be hard to tell! :)

For some reason to me she looks like she should be in Tron or something. It's those neon colors against the dark! Cool stuff!

I've been watching that one... He's so beautiful and I really miss having crowntails around. They have the best personalities. But $35... that's a bit much for me.

Unfortunately, I just got fish in yesterdays shipment and that copper CT is bid only. If he had been "buy now" he would be here in America today lol
