I don't know how old this one is but I had him in my care for about 20 days. The first day I brought him home he was kind of transparent and had two blue stripes down his body, I thought he was stressed but he just didn't form solid colors yet. Baby bettas are a lot of fun to watch them grow!

Look underneath between the two fins that hang down, towards the front, is there a white dot? If so you have a female.

I agree with MyRainbowBettaFish. It does look like a Veiltail.

hmmm, right now it looks more like a delta. the 2nd picture is when he isn't in full flare, but there's still a possibility that it is a VT. wait and see :)
