Caring for a female betta?

I know I've seen a thread asking this very question, but I can't seem to find it now. Are there any special considerations for keeping a female betta as a pet? I remember reading something about "eggbound", but is that something I can prevent?

And since this is also a thinly veiled excuse to brag on my new fishie girl, meet Mata Hari:

Nothing special, really. As far as I know, overfeeding rich foods like bloodworms and brine shrimp can cause a female to become egg bound, so feeding rich foods sparingly can help prevent that.

I love her colors! So also seems very active and her tank looks really pretty too. I have a female betta named Watermelon because she is green and pinkish red and I have always fed her brine shrimp and recently switched to bloodworms which she seems to enjoy much better and she has never gotten egg bound but that's just mine betta lol
