I got a betta from my pet store. They sold it as a veiltail female and I was wondering if that is indeed what it is. I have gone through many websites trying to figure it out because I know that they could have been mistaken.
It has a beard, Flares at my other male betta from the side, kind of a big belly and short fins. I have looked for a ovipositor but sadly the belly is white and so I cannot tell.
I only have had one other female who I recently lost to ich. She was a lot more easy to sex then my current one. I can post pictures if this helps.
USUALLY petstore fish are sexed before they are bought from the wholesalers so already sexed by the time they get to the store.
Females do flare, my girls have big bellies (they are dropping eggs at present)
Please post pics
