This is my daughters black Dragon plakat betta and she thinks it’s a female. She’s wanting to get another if it is. It’s a 5 gallon and the betta is about 6 months old and about 2”. I know nothing about bettas other than husbandry, so if it is a female, can she have another? If so, would male or female be better?

Regardless if its a male or a female, I wouldn't put any other bettas in their. I've heard that if its even two or three female bettas together in a small tank they will fight.

Well, I'm no betta expert, but I'm guessing a female. I don't think a 5g is big enough to house more than 1 female....Maybe a F & M pair...for a very short time. Why not just enjoy the betta she has? A 5g is very small...

Thanks, female is my guess too, just with plakats I’m not that confident in my guess. I’m good leaving it alone, just when I told my daughter I think it’s a female, she asked if that means she could get another LOL but a solo betta it will be
