Thanks for the link, it looks like I do have one female, maybe two. The others are hiding.
Well yeah i think that's what he meant. Now I'm pretty sure your betta will eat the fry. If not, the amanos will eat them. I have full sized amanos that I never see berried in my tank and I've had them for 4 months now.
