Plakat female?

I am so lost with one of my girls. I don't know what she is... most likely a halfmoon, but reminds me so much of a plakat. How do you tell if a female betta is a plakat? I think you'd use rays, right?

I can usually tell by the anal fin... Do you have pictures?

There are a few ways to tell but I agree with the others. It'd help if you could post a picture

You sure? Her tail has been the same rounded type since i got her (2 months ago) and my other VT's in the tank have the classic veil shape tail :)

Yeah. I'm not sure. One of my VT females had the rounded shaped tail and her anal fin looks pointed which is usually a sign of VT but I'll take a better look at the picture

I see what you mean about the regular shaped tail but I'm confident that she's a VT but I'll let someone else chime in
