Forest Green Betta... male or female?

So, I have been looking at this little "girl" for almost 3 weeks, finally caved in and bought her today (technically caved in last night lol)
Well, shes relaxed a bit and her fins arent clamped up anymore, and Im wondering is she might be a he... also, I need a name for him/her!!!!
(thinking of calling him/her Pickle)

At th store:


bit mre relaxed:


pretty much unclamped:




Her? original QT tank was next to my male, King, and he was flaring like crazy, no sign from her though.... any ideas?

well, once you can get him/her flairing. Check and see if s/he has a huge beard, also look for the egg dot.

O.... lmao, this is interesting, I've been looking for females to start a sorority, but even if "Pickle" turns out to be a boy hes got a forever home :)
Still hoping hes a she though, lol, great personality so far, easily stressed though...

Its official.... Pickle is a boy, he flared at me when I came in the room :P
and more interestingly, while hes maintained his forest green body, his fins are now red with aqua blue streaks, Ill get new pictures up once its day time (cant see anything in the pics Ive taken)
what color does that make him?
