Welcome to the Forum! :wave:

I agree: She looks like a "he" to me. But don't count on me because I've been wrong once already this year. ;-)

If that is is he, he is a very nice looking Betta.

We think also that it's most likely a he and could be a plakat tail type. It's funny, years ago we also had a mislabeled petco baby, but ours was labeled as a male and turned out to be a female, who we lovingly had named Jasper. We kept the name though as she was still a shade of blue that the name still kind of fit. Beautiful baby though, congrats!

I agree that the fins and bodyshape look male to me, but I always advocate looking for ovaries to be completely sure. Since this betta is light-bodied, it should be easy enough to tell, just shine a flashlight at them from behind. If there's a big triangular shadow behind their stomach, they're a female and if there's not, they're male!



And yes probably a delta tail, their fins may grow into a full HM spread when they're mature but I would be surprised. Very cute either way! :)
