Something about Squito says female to me but I'm certainly no expert. I could be very, very wrong. If you look at the little male you can kind of see how his lips pook out and up. I just don't see that in any females. Also, males have a more rounded back, leading into the head. Uhm, the back of their head kind of slopes down to their mouth, whereas in the females I see, it's more of a straight line. I'd try and take a pic of one of my females as an example but since they're in a sorority, they absolutely never stay still. Uhm . . . let's see. How to explain it. When I look at a male betta's head, the lips are apparent, more prominent. When I look at a female's head, I don't see the lips.

Sorry, my methods of telling male from female are rather unscientific. >.<

Either way, Squito is gorgeous. Whether it's gorgeous beautiful or gorgeous handsome . . . not 100% sure.

I understand, oldman and electra have the features your talking about. Squito is just a silly confused girl i guess. Maybe she thinks wiggling under her single blown bubble will make them all swim in fear or something xD

These are some of my males. Can you see how their lips are prominent and how they have more of a sloped head? Or is it just me and my imagination?



And here are two of my girls. To me, their lips aren't prominent and they have a smoother line from their back to their head. Also, they seem to have a different shape than males. They're narrower at the tail but deep-chested, whereas it seems the males are more rectangular.

They're all so beautiful. I'm so glad I was able to follow your spawning efforts, Punki. It's been so fun and sad and sweet. :) You have an awesome spawn log and I'm sad that its end is near. When all the babies have gone to their homes, I'll miss reading about them.

Squito does have a more feminine look. Sharky, though, definitely seems to be male if my judging by looks is correct. Sharky's ventral fins seem to be pretty long, which I find to be a good indication of gender, the longer the more likely it is to be male.
