When you get your little one settled in his/her new tank make sure to post another pic. He's/ she's so blue!

I am not trying to take over your thread btw. It just seems silly to have 2 threads about our babies we got on the same day. :D Besides it's like we are having a little betta play date... well not really, but as close as we can get lol.

I got a couple pictures but I didn't want to use the flash on the camera so the pictures are pretty dark.

This is the little one I got. She's pretty small, probably about an inch from the tip of her nose to her tail. That's the handle to a net in the background. :/



LOL Sena- Yes! I have to admit this little fish thinks she can eat with the big boys that's for sure!!!!

Chibir3dpanda- I have no idea what a baby crowntail looks like. Your little Splash of Color might turn into anything, the babies seem to all look a lot like each other when they are so tiny. I bow down to people who have watched their spawns grow up though. It's still going to be a surprise to see what they look like at full growth. :D The adult crowntail females I saw today really didn't really have very long spikey fins. Who knows, Maybe they will grow in. I have no idea though. :D


.....Betta Fish are like potato chips, it's hard to have just one!
Arm yourself with knowledge. Consider advise. Make informed decisions.

well, mine was marked female veil tail and she looked kind of like that...a month later she was definitely a he and looked more like a round tail. Now he's starting to spike more and I'm wondering if he's a young crown tail...heh. Only time will tell.

Veil tails can have the spikey look to them. Here is ZEBRA, she is a combtail. That is a decent outcome of a CT/VT probably f2 if anything. veil tail is veil tail. you can get crosses like this, and with females it'll be more defined when they have fully grown.
THAT is the only way the betta will be anything like a CT, and it's still considered a VT.

Second picture is Crayola. His fins have the spikey ends, his dorsal has the shaggy look to them. He is a VT. As he as a pet store betta, it could very much be possible in his genetics to have CT somewhere, as wholesalers cross types to get different looks and colors - hence sometimes you get the shaggy types. It's still a VT.

The last one, is one I found on google. That is a juvi crowntail.

The rays on bettas, can help determine the tail type as well. But someone else has to pipe up for that, as I am no good in explaining :)

EDIT Your betta looks to be a VT female, because the shape of her belly. See how my Zebra is? Same shape of body. I have females who have long fins, and short fins, are are all VT.

Breed for the breed, not for the money; the words any REAL breeder would understand.

You must know nothing in order to know all, for all is nothing and nothing is for all.
