Niiice.

I'm awful with names. I always go with little kid names or ancient emperors or philsophers. Interesting mix.

So, do the females who build bubblenests spawn well? I wonder if they just look at the male's nest and think, "Pssh, mine is better!"

Yeah, because his bubblenest was not impressive compared to hers! Lol.
On the plus side, at least you know "she" is happy.

Yeah, people say that is gets easier for "betta people" to be able able to tell the genders apart based on behavior and body shape, so I am sure you are right since you seem to have a fair bit of experince with bettas.

Lol!
Oh man, I just realized you were calling it "it." Lol, I totally read that wrong. But, like I said, despite the gender, at least you know the fish is happy. Its pretty cute too.
You said you put it inot a male's tank for a bit, but no spawning happened, right? Maybe the fact that they didn't fight makes it likely to be a female?

Oh. Nevermind what I said then. That makes it more puzzling again. That tends to make me think male, but I know sometimes females and males will fight if the girl doesn't feel that the timing is right.
