Petco Selling Butterfly?

I couldn't buy him but he was beautiful. I took the pic with my phone, sorry for the fuzziness... Also, I think he's considered a butterfly...

Its hard to see but he does look like a butterfly. Butterfly's really aren't that rare so I wouldn't be surprised to find one at Petco. My butterfly came from Wal-mart.

Yeah looks like a BF. My local PETCO has had a LOT of BFs lately!

Yesterday I got a HM from Petco which looks very similar to you picture. I think HM refers to the finnage style and butterfly refers to the coloration pattern. They also had a delta tail with similar coloration pattern. He was very pretty too.

Finnage and coloration are different things. You can find the butterfly pattern in any tail type from VT to PK.. its usually not seen in CTs however.

Petstore bettas are sold by tail type.. IE the shape and form of their fins.

yes, petco does mislabel them often. But they don't mislabel the CTs or VTs since they are pretty obvious. They often mislabel HMs and DTs
