So I bought a cute little female dumbo betta a while back. The more I watch her the less I’m convinced it’s a “her”. The betta in question has an egg spot, but also longer fins. I’ve also noticed that it had a beard. I was beginning to think that this she might be a he so I decided to try and breed him with one of my females from my sorority tank. He started dancing and flaring, but he never build a bubble nest, despite the bubble wrap I put in the tank and he actually started to hide from the female, who by the way was SUPER into him... so... what is he/she????

Best way to tell would be to share photos, but by actions it does sound very much like a male. Fwiw beards/ egg spots/ long fins mean almost nothing nowadays. Males and females can have all of that depending on the lines. Behavior and looking for ovaries are your best bet on sexing.
