    I bought a trio of female Bettas today and when I got them home I’m sure this is a male, what do you think?

    Sorry about the quality of the pic, but you can see its shape. I saw it flare a couple of times, but when I put it in a jar to study it better, it got stress stripes which males don’t usually get. It’s got an ovipositor but some male Plakats can have that. Also its ventrals are a bit short for a male, I’m really confused on this one and would appreciate your help, thanks

    It’s a male by the looks – somebody will identify the exact species in a bit I expect!

    Don’t put it in another tank with another male – theres no need.
