hi guys~
ive recently bought a new betta,, supposidely female.... but i keep getting this hunch that its actually a male. for one, shes MUCH bigger than anyone ive kept before..even my full grown males arent as big as her and her body doesnt seem too female-like to me. its not rounded like the others. ive checked to see if shes got an ovipostor, and shes got one but its pretty small..also shes pretty docile, and she doesnt flare at anyone..
anyways, im at a loss... and i would appreciate anyone's input! :D

shes pretty much always had those stripes.. but then again ive only had her for about 2 days.. her ventrals are a bit less than 1/2 of an inch long, which i guess isnt as long as most males, and shes about 2 inches long body wise not counting the tail. shes very passing of most fish, even the males. i floated her in the male tank to see if she would react,,, and instead she was hellbent on trying to munch on the little snail on the side of the cup XD
aww thanks guys! i just saw her flare today and yup. female. lol shes got a tiny little flare and even when she is flaring she doesnt seem too enthusiastic about it XD shes the biggest girl ive ever seen though.. my petco girl looks half the size of her!
