y My roommate and I decided to get a betta fish, without much research unfortunately. I've had a betta in the past, he lived about 3 or 4 years but it was when I was much younger. Of course, we were lured in by the baby bettas at petco so we can "watch it grow." I've come to realize this was a bad mistake. I think the fish may actually be a full grown female? But I could be wrong. I was hoping some lovely people on here could help me identify whether it appears to be male or female. The pictures aren't too good (he/she isn't very photogenic). He/she also is not in a tank yet because we are letting the new tank run for 24 hours.
