I think it's a female. She has an eggy belly and I think I spy ovaries. Also, she has an egg spot. Think it's safe to say it's a female. If she flares and doesn't have a full beard, it's probably a girl. That's another good way to tell.

It still might be too soon to tell. My friend FishehGoBloop has had a Baby Betta since December or maybe November and we have thought it was a girl this whole time. Just recently, this past month actually Baby (the fish's name) has grown out its fins and is now starting to look like it actually might be a boy. Its skirt is much much longer now and its tail is too, they grew extremely fast during just one weeks time, he's now started flaring his gills, so we are starting to think that this baby girl is actually a baby boy. So it still might be too early to tell.

1) Absolutely GORGEOUS betta. :) Really stunning, excellent color. And or $1? Come one! That is awesome.
2) 2 months old? Hard to say. I was under the impression that until about 2-3 months almost all bettas look the same, and then males undergo a huge growth spurt. You might have to wait a while yet. :)
3) Tail type as of right now? Veiltail or Delta tail but it's very hard to say.

Sorry I couldn't be of more help!

Oh, i forgot to mention about Baby. We went from thinking it's was a Veiltail female to now thinking it's a Halfmoon/Delta male lol. Such a huge difference in a very short amount of time lol.

I can't wait to see more pictures of him/her in the future to see what he/she turns out to be!

Beautiful baby! I love the black edging thats developing on the fins! Personally I think its still to early to determine sex, give it another couple weeks - month and you'll be able to tell for sure.
