Question Dumb decision on my part.

No worries, my baby is fine! Just realized though that I, still being a newbie, determined which betta type my Patriot is with thinking they labeled him and I just look at the cup they had him in and it indeed is not labeled. So could anyone be so kind as to let me know which betta type he is, tail and coloring etc.?

Thanks so much. I don't want to keep saying he's something he's really not.


Love my 3 boyyyys.

He's a VT. But in your albums he has some rips in his fins? That doesn't make him a CT but there are rips. Not sure about the colors, sorry.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Based on your avatar, he is a veil tail :)

Warm, clean water will heal him quickly. I would remove the plant ASAP also you can use pantyhose (women's tights), run that over any plants/decor in your tank. If something rips the pantyhose, it can rip your betta's fins.

My female used to be in a sorority and she had minor nips on her dorsal & anal fin.. I'm not sure how long it has been healed but she's been out of the sorority for 3 weeks and it is back to normal.

It might grow back clear but eventually should turn back to it's previous color.

It's ok, it was a small mistake.

I had a plastic plant and threw it away last week!

My little PranaMama had a cut in her tail from it but it healed in 2 days after 9 drops of BettaFix!

Be careful using bettafix. It is known to damage their labyrinth organ, and in some cases kills them.

My parents don't have a Petsmart or Petco nearby, so can I get a treasure chest decoration or something like that from Walmart and it be safe? Or do they have safer plants at all?
