Male or Female?

I know what I was told, but I've been wondering for a while now if that was wrong, or I'm wrong or...

Anyone have opinions on these two?

First one is a female. Second one is a male.

The white one is female, the multicolored/ darker one is male

Can you check their belly area for an egg spot? It is a little white dot. If that is present, its a female. If not its a male.

I’ll look closer but not sure I’ve seen it on either. I was looking for ovaries as well but yeah.

In a local chain store today and a Betta that looks exactly like the dark one here was labeled a female. Not saying the store knows anything really, just that it’s not helping my confusion.

The one you saw could be a true female with the same color pattern

well, I meant fins. Same size, same dorsal, anal and pectoral fin structure.
my other bettas have been a bit more obvious I suppose.
My females flare and behave like a male and the males are incredibly mellow and chill. Except Jasper, he’d flare at my cat. Crazy bugger.

Oh. Ok. Well some bettas are bred for certain traits it could? be a female with the same fin pattern. Sometimes people sell long finned females and it adds more confusion to the jumble.
