    Please help me in sexing the attached bettas. I bought them from LFS a month ago (may be 1.5 months), and the LFS guy gave me saying that they were female and they looked the same as well then... i guess they were of < 2 months.. they were of short fins when i brought them.. but now, they have long fins and one of the is chasing the females (so isolated him for now), the other one is still fine with the females(sorority tank)... Also, I can still see the egg spot...

    Can someone plz help me..

    Down below(last one) was how they looked when i brought them, infact with even shorter fins...

    I'd have to guess Males. Even my VT females don't get ventrals like that... I must say that you're feeding them well :p

    My best friend has just given up and decided to humour me :p She's even gonna come wait for my fish with me :p

    They dont actually wait for any new fish, coz, they are pretty sure that am gonna get a new one everytime... so, i stopped visiting my LFS... and if at all I visit, i grab some plants and rush back as far as possible.... :D
