i would love to get a baby boy betta, i think it would be awesome to watch him grow up, but i really would only want to do this if it is a true male. i fell in love with one the other day, and i would love to go back tomorrow and pick him up if hes still there. but did notice an egg spot, i have read males might display this as well. ive also read theyre kind of hard to sex as juveniles. is there any signs that will tell if its a male or female? also, are you able to tell what tail type theyll have?
