1. Usually make bettas have noticeably longer neutral fins than females
2. Usually females have short fins, but there are quite a few exemptions were male have short fins too, like plakat bettas.
3. Females are usually a bit more passing of tankmates, but sometimes this isn't true as females have been known to be just as aggresive as males sometimes
4. Females have what's called an opivoster right by there ventral fins, it's just a little white dot. But sometimes juvenile males have this same spot too
5. Males usually have larger anal fins

No one ever said you were. Just 99% of stores recommend keeping them together which gives you dead fish so you go buy more.

What size is the tank? :)

Please don't get another female, a 5 gallon is far too small for a sorority
