I got a baby betta from Petco a month ago. Since then, I've been jumping back and forth on what gender I think it is. My betta-keeping friend insists that it's a male, as does my sister. I think it's a female... But then again, I'm really not sure.
Today it flared for the first time my VT Elliot. I had a view from the back, so I couldn't see much, but I did see a thin, clear layer behind the operculum. I don't know if that means anything, but it was there :P
I'd love to get a second (or fourth) opinion on its gender. Anybody want to guess?
Sorry the pics are so blurry... They're all from my android. And the baby moves so much!
These are in its old .5 gallon. I just moved it into a 1 gallon, so those pics a little bubbly. For some reason, the 1 gallon pics are clearer.
If there's anything that would help identify it better, let me know and I can try to get a picture of it!
