Steve looks like he could turn out to be a half moon.

He can't though, he's only got two ray's which means he can only be a VT, a CT or a Plakat. His fins are already too long for a PK lol and his webbing would have reduced if he were a CT so that just leaves VT left. Which I'm fine with because he's a beautiful boy either way! But thanks

I love how you can just identify bettas like that, it's crazy.

I thought PKs have 4 rays? 0.o Looks like my past betta was a PK after all.

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

Omg these pics are so cute! They really are growing up fast. Steve is so pretty. I really wished one of my babies turned out to be male so I could see the change, but they were all females. Tony is such a little cutie! I love the different colors they turned into.

10 gallon planted - HMDT male betta, 4 peppered corys, assassin snails, Amano shrimp
10 gallon divided bare bottom - HMPK male, 2 VT males

Well it depends on the PK! HMPK, yeah they've got 4+ ray's but a regular Trad PK all have 2 ray's and some with 4 ray's. That's why it's difficult to sometimes tell female PK's from VT's because they both have 2 ray's.

Thank you!!! You know, I actually only wanted 1 male and 1 female, I originally thought Tony was a female and it flip flopped for a while as well but I wanted him to be in the sorority but now I can't so they'll be staying in the split 5.5 which they seem to be fine with, they love their space so it's all good with me! ^_^ And it's funny too because to me, their colors really don't look that different. I have a problem with have lots of blue fish or fish with blue on them; Rembrandt, Aero, Jarvis, Mystique, Little Blue, Raven, Lynx, Jewel, Lady, Aurora and Stardust technically, and Shadowcat when she's not under intense lighting and is actually purple.

So since they both have blue on them, and Steve moreso, it's kind of disapointing for me but I still love them no matter what! I know they still have plenty of growing left to do and have lots to change, so I know Tony at least still has some blue wash that I think he'll get rid of, but still

Yeah they do look similar but slightly different colors. I love blue bettas! I used to not like red bettas but now I am starting to love them too. I think I just love all bettas =p
