definitely male, see the end of the dorsal fin is slightly pointed, that indicates it's male ^^

Does he have light? >> I assume he does but it could be that's why he was less colorful because at night their spots fade as well or at least my big gourami's did

Edit: I meant colors

Yup I have a light, it came with the tank. I guess if it were a fluorescent one he may look better

XD no as long as there is light he should be fine >> it just maybe his food or that's the way he's communicating I'm sure if they can do that, but puffer fish can

Well when I fed him, he just spat it back out so he clearly doesn't like what I give him lol I might try him on my betta food see if he appreciates that more lol

they tend to like blood worms more, I'm not sure if betta food is right for them, not sure how it is different than regular tropical fish food, but frozen blood worms are awesome and if you decide to try it soak it in some of the aquarium water first until it is loose otherwise it can make them constipated
