Really??? Wow. Well then, I stand corrected, my dear. When my daughter had them (some 20-odd years ago) the guy at the pet store showed me what he said was a pic of the female Beta and she was nothing remarkable at all. I was told (at least I think I was told) that only the male has such color and shape.  It was very long ago and it was at a time when my mind was rather clouded, if you will.

Anyway, if you say this is true, I must accept it as such and declare that I was wrong. Hmmm... I really could have sworn I had this one correct. Oh well, not the first time I have needed to be "shown the light".....HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thank you, my dear.

Hmmm...maybe it's the zoom and flash of the camera that may be confusing you, my friend.  I kept male betta fish before as pets, so I know how they look like. My Sweet Leaf is a female. I have tried the mirror trick before, and try as she might, she can't flare her gills as much as a male betta normally can...but she is aggressive. Besides, she was tiny when I first got her. I just raised her right. HA!!! Here's another pic of Sweet Leaf that I posted earlier this year (without zoom nor flash). Perhaps it will convince you just a bit.:

My dear, I assure you I am not "daft". The pic you posted there is a male Beta when he is angry. They flare their gills and fins to appear larger before they fight.  They are also known as Chinese Fighting fish, as they will immediately attack each other (males) and fight. They are bred for this and do it naturally. Val's dear pet is a male. She can prove this with a very simple experiment...place a small mirror in front of "her" so "she" can see "herself". He will flare up exactly in the manner your pic there demonstrates. Don't take my word for it, try it! I used to have Betas, I know this.

Yes, however, you DO know that Sweet Leaf is a MALE, right Val? The female Beta is a rather unremarkable, smaller fish that looks somewhat like a large guppy.....HA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm quite happy and proud to say that it's been a year since I bought Sweet Leaf, and she's still going strong.

Rocking out to the Boneyard on Sirius 19 right now.  The other thing making me happy is seeing my baseball team (Philadelphia Phillies) re-sign super slugger Ryan Howard for 3 years and $54 million!!!
