Help identify

didn't get much response in my Sorority thread, thought maybe because it wasn't outright asking for identification help.

Anyway picked up this female at the grocery store... She's HUGE! 4 inches (over 10cm... maybe she's really old? idk... Trying to figure out her tail... fairly sure she's a HM, just need some confrimation.

If you can get another picture of her flaring, that would be great!

From what I see in the pictures, I would say that it "could" be a male and either way if it's a male or female, it is a PK (Plakat). She/He doesn't have the full 180* spread.

she's gotten her color back and her stress strip is gone. she's now dominating the tank and taken a chunk out of the little red/white/blue baby's tail. My Red VT has become confused and is now showing mating bars. Working on a flaring pic now.

Saw her yawn a min ago she looked like a largemouth bass.

Pretty sure it's a she there were about 5 just like her in the tank. She just looked the darkest to me.

Well if she is a she, then she is a very pretty plakat. Also IMO, plakats and other short fined bettas tend to be more aggressive toward other fish and other females. I guess because they have very little fins that slow them down so they are faster as well.

Okay well with the picture. I think she is a male and I KNOW that he is a HMPK halfmoon plakat.

To be sure of the gender, you need to look for the *egg spot*. Its a little white dot that only females have and if "she" doesnt have that then she is a male, and should be taken out of the tank immediately. Usually female HMPK's fins are shorter and the pectoral fins are also smaller.
