I'm beginning to think that Fishy, my male dragon scale Betta is really in fact a female dragon scale Betta. I've noticed a tiny white spot which may be an egg spot, but I've been told that males sometimes get white spots there too. Also the forward fins seem to be shorter than what I would expect on a male. He (she?) has been recovering from velvet and also a jump out of the tank so the fins are not at their full glory. However Fishy has become very happy and spunky once again and is recovering nicely. I put a mirror in front of him today for the first time and there was NO flaring at all, just an obvious curiosity. When my hand slipped and the mirror suddenly moved toward the tank, Fishy darted and hid. This is not typical male behavior is it? I can't get a good picture because Fishy is very camera shy. What other tell tale signs are there? :-?
