Dropsy or plump female Betta?

Recommended Posts

I just got my first female Betta, but I've owned males in the past. She arrived today in the male from aquahuna and is currently getting drip acclimated so I don't want to stress her out too much. I noticed she is quite rotund, though... Are females typically this much chunkier than males? No pineconing that I can see. 


Apologies for the bad picture. I'll upload more later when she's in her aquarium. 

NEW PHOTOS! she's a bit pale from shipping, but she's gained some color back over night. Very curious and timid, thinking of naming her suki.

Almost looks like a male alien, or Imbellis. But when you’ve got better photos, we’ll see.

The first photo is a bit misleading haha. Although she lost a lot of color, she's normally a deep teal with bright yellow fins. She also has these stunning rays in her fins! I think she's just a particularly beautiful halfmoon?
