The breeder listed her as a half-moon, same as yours. Today she's not any more aggressive than the others. But she does look more to my inexperienced eye like a hmpk. I don't think hmpks should have big ears. I think it affects her swimming. I'll try to get another picture of her now that she no longer clamps her fins.

No my male is a hmpk with big ears he has no problems swimming I think the shorter tail helps them swim betta then if it was a long fin betta with big ears. I feel the hmpk look awesome with big ears.

You got the one in the photo from aqua bid lucky. My females anal fin or bottom fin is not pointed like yours it is more rounded like I see on pk females . I hope mine is a pk because that is what I wanted I kind of got this girl by accident.

I had to put the time-out net in the aquarium for one little girl that persisted in nipping. The copper girl is in the hospital tank for torn fins and my EE has one of her pectorals nipped a little. The rest of the females seem to be settling in pretty well. I think Sweetheart, my precious double-tail is going to end up being the alpha.

It's a challenge to have pretty long-finned females together. They are the most vulnerable to nipping, it seems.

She is a pretty girl. I feel really bad that the breeder tricked us (you). If for any reason I have to re-home Queen B, you will be the first one to know.

EE plakats can actually be quite speedy. I have picked a EE plakat at Walmart of all places. Even though she is quite spunkly I am afraid to put her in a the sorority she has tiny white fins that look like angel wings. It would only take on good nip to take out one of her fins and she would not be able to move well. While they won't be as gorgeous I am mostly going with small finned girls so here will be less to nip. Thanks for sharing your experiences it will help me when I finally let my fish go.

Thank you, Mar. The DT, (Sweetheart) is my favorite, too.

I just released the troublemaker back in the tank and she and Queen B immediately went at it again. Fortunately, they responded to my wiggling fingers separating them and the sorority is currently rather peaceful.

If squabbles continue, I'm taking out Queen B. She may need to be by herself with some aquarium salt anyway. I don't want her pectorals to be attacked any more than they already have.

Jadablu, thanks for the encouragement. Wise choice to go with shorter finned girls.
