Smile What Kind?

Hi everyone!!! This is Sparky, she is a betta I have had for a while now. I have been told that she is a girl on another post, but recently I got a message asking if I was SURE it was a girl... so, me, the paranoid, not wanting to embaress my poor fish for the second time.. am asking all you wonderful people again!!
-What gender is he/she?
-What kind of tail? I am think veiltail
-What would you describe her color as?
Here is the YouTube link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=629UF...ature=youtu.be

Enjoy and thanks! She lives in a divided 20gal tank, with a heater. She has about 5 or so gallons of tank space. I love her and would do anything, so if you see anything wrong, feel free to point it out....

Just an add note: he/she lives next to a female that he/she can see, but has not blown a bubble nest or even showed intrist in or flared at. But he/she flares HUGE!!

I still think it's a male.
He's got long ventrals and a definite beard. He might be young, his growth might've been stunned along the way or he's product of bad genetics as his fins are shorter than a nornal VT.

That is a male, either undeveloped or stunted.

The caudal fin is much to long to be a female, also female veiltales, their tails look almost like a oval.

Hi Thomasdog. This is a difficult one. The dorsal and anal fin both say female but that tail says male. Does (s)he have an eggspot? About how big is Sparky? If (s)he is still very small then there is a good chance Sparky will be a male. Very cute little fellow.

Keep Sparky's water clean and in a few days, the tail should heal up and we can see what it looks like. :)
