The original betta in this thread clearly turned out to be male...

Could some of the seasoned betta ppl explain the differences that I'm not seeing to determine the gender?

I am not a "seasoned" expert but in my experience with betta fry I would say that one looks female. I say that because the ventral fins are fairly short. The body shape looks kind of male to me, but if the fins stay short then I say female.

I have a female that builds small nests. I'm pretty sure she is actually a female.

I think it looks like a female... the tummy is round, and it is just shaped like a female. :)

^ and^^ which picture are you talking about being female? The original fishy in this thread turned out to be a boy.

Mine very well may be a girl... but keep in mind I took the picture immediately after feeding. They color up the best for me that way

I have a female CT and she blows bubble nests all the time,
and at first sight your fish looked like a female because she looked like she had the
little bulge where females store their eggs. But, you will probably have to wait till her
fins develop more to know for sure. :)

...what are you feeding him..?
Do you have him jarred?

What kind/color classification is he?

He's got the prettiest face!

Aw, thanks! I'm feeding him Omega One Betta pellets (Every day), and various frozen foods- bloodworms (every day or every other day), beefheart (rarely), tubifex worms (rarely), Brine Shrimp (once or twice a week)... He is jarred, in a sense. He's in about a 1/2 gallon kritter keeper and gets frequent water changes (Every other day).

As per color, I have no idea really! :) He was from a "Black Fire" spawn which both parents were black with red fins that had black edges, but he is kind of iridescent (the pinky/purple) and a steel grey color... with some red. I think he will color up more once he is in a heated/filtered tank cause thats what his sisters did. They definitely darkened up once they were in a tank.

Ummm his fins I think are halfmoon. His brother (Aviator) turned out to be Delta I believe. When he flares, he has a nice spread.

And I agree about the face! I love his face. It's adorable! :) Thanks!
