So I posted a while back about my female halfmoon betta. She is still “changing”. I have bred her, so I know for sure she wasn’t a young male. I’ve never seen a Female like this one. Any info will help:). The first pic is the female, the second is one of her offspring858932F6-3346-4CEE-A4A5-637D657D9ECD.jpeg684AE832-F276-4492-A3EA-1DD974289EC5.png

I wanna say thats a Male from the long fins and visible beard. Generally female betta halfmoons will still have shorter fins

theres a small chance thats a female looking at the longer fins and his exposed beard as mentioned. Did you check for the egg tube by chance?

Wow she looks incredibly similar to a male and if you didn't tell me you've bred her, I would assume so too. I do know that more females are being bred to have longer fins and some females act more like males including building bubble nests. You have a very unique female. :D

Here's an example:

Thankyou. I’m glad I was able to breed her once before all my males became intimidated by her

I'm sure "she" is a male. Like Blueberrybetta said noting the beard. It also has broad ventral fins. My male Betta has that same white spot, some have spots that look like egg spots but are not. I'm sure it's male.
