What Is my Betta?

I bought "her" under the impression she was a girl, but she hasn't taken any interest in the guy next to her and now there is a bubble nest in her tank...So my questions are is it actually a boy betta (in which case her name will cease to be Selena) and what type is he? If it is a male I was thinking a Round or Plakat.

Thanks

It looks like she's just a longer finned lady, to me. She doesnt have an angry-looking male face lol. She's got a cute innocent girl face and no beard that I can see. If theres a small white dot between her two ventral fins, its a girl :)

I thought she looked too cute to be a male, lol. I thought I saw on on her when I first bought her but I don't see it anymore. And I noticed today that she decided to blow a nice big bubble nest. confused me to no end. Maybe she was trying to tell her neighbor something considering he's a male.

lol yeah I'm hopefully going to breed those two in about 2 or 3 weeks. It'll either be those two or my other pair. lol

Cool! Be sure to make a spawn log in the breeding section, I'd love to watch the progress!

Such a beautiful betta. I'm no expert on plakats, I've only had one male plakat, so I'm no help, but I love the look of him/her.
