fishlover77

Hello Eveyone, someone please tell me if my betta is a female or male because Accor to google and Berta experts female bettas aren’t supposed to have long fins and if they do is more likely a male , but I’m confused because my fish has a egg spot , please someone let me know if is a male :)

yes he is probable a male. I bought one a few months ago labeled as a "female" betta and It looked like too since it was a plakat, even had a egg spot. although it turned out to be a male!!

I have one question, when I put it next to another male betta they don’t get angry with eachother , im so confused because it looks like a girl full of eggs then it has long fins so I’m super confused.

Wait... are there multiple bettas in the same tank? or is there a divider or something?

Yes they are separate

Based on the second picture, definitely a male. However, the fat belly does not look normal, even for a female. He may be constipated, sick or have it by birth.

My betta once developed such an 'egg spot' a couple of months ago... turned out to be overfeeding
