I hope so too...
She doesn't really get into fights. She's just flaring and chasing.. I'm hoping that's all it turns out to be. hahaha... big angry woman. X)

I think that your Betta is a female. She must've been very young when you bought her, and now she is going - I also do believe that if she is doing fine with the others, leave her there.

Bit more concerned after this weekend with the loss of Ambi... Rutela has grown considerably yet again. If she continues getting bigger, I may have to rehome her. I simply don't have room for another male. What you guys think? :/

She DID when I got her. I can't find it for the life of me now.

The colors are SO STRIKING, i still lean towards girl because of the vertical stripes but the lack of eggspot is so confusing, shes getting huge though. What does she do if you put a mirror up to her?

She ignores the mirror. She flares occasionally at her tank mates but it's for brief seconds and then she's back to swimming around. I just tried for several minutes with a tiny flash light to find her friggin' egg tube and it just isn't there. I can rather plainly see where it should be marked by lighter scales and perhaps even an tiny opening, but it's not sticking out like my other girls.

That is so odd! Does she always see her tankmates? My girl would never flare, or if she did it was so little and cute, nothing big and impressive like my male, so i was thinking if she isnt used to other fish and didnt flare or it was small that maybe she was a girl with a eggy spot deformity? If you had a male id say to put her near him and watch for stripes again or maybe some bloating but if it is indeed a girl and her eggspot somehow vanished then she may not be able to release the eggs she grows. Im just completely stumped!
