She is huge, and is getting along with my normal-sized Veil Tail female. It was funny because at first when I put the King Betta in the 5gal tank my smaller one flared and was like "DIS IS MY TANK!" and she was just like..."k". xD She looked so cute all flared and tiny.

I've noticed this too, I think I posted it somewhere else. My petsmart recently has ENORMOUS females, they look like whales instead of betta fish. None of them are cute either, they kind of look like the stereotypical "fat ugly chick" :(...

No cute faces even...all fat-lipped, small eyes, HUGE body, even bigger belly

Some young males can have a white spot, might I point out. My Jade's got one, but he's a big, flaring halfmoon.

Another way to tell male/female differences is the females tend to flare with just their gills and don't wiggle and such to show off their fins... males do, majorly.

Although, I do have one female that's so rowdy when she sees a male that she does flare with her fins a well. A weird girl, but she is one.

Another way to tell is by the betta's face and/or body shape, but you really have to know what you're looking for to know for sure.

I noticed you said you put her in the same tank as your other female... this isn't a very good idea unless you start a sorority with multiple girls in a larger tank,because 5 gallons would be a bit too small for the two girls to have enough room to be safe and able to hide should one become a bully.

The two have been fine together for two days. I have heard that I do need a bigger tank but they are now the only two in there and my normal female loves following the King around. There haven't been any problems but I was going to separate them as soon as I see any fin nipping. I will try and get a picture of the King Betta tomorrow. I don't have my camera with me at the moment but thank you.
