after a year I'm still unsure of tail type

Here's an ok pic of Angus...I couldn't get a good pic of him flared. When I got Angus he was classified as a delta. Is that true? Can you tell from this pic?



I'm still learning how to tell bettas apart.

This was Angus when I first got him for reference...


Angus is my betta's name, not mine. thanks to valen1014 for the pic!
Current bettas: Angus and Phoenix(we changed Fruity's name to Phoenix)

Yep, looks like a delta. I have to say, that is an amazing change!

Looks like a delta to me - interesting that he lost his butterfly coloring.

Yup he's a delta. His tail doesnt reach a full 180* to be HM but he's got too much finnage and without a slope to be VT.

10 HM, 3 HMPK, 5 HMPK fry
8 German Blue Ram, 5 Green Dragon BNP, 4 Albino BNP, 4 Calico BNP, 6 Red BNP, 5 Kuhli Loaches, 2 ADF, 7 Peppered Cories, & 6 Tiger Endlers + Fry
