can you id this fem tail type?

i can not id fems besides the obvious ct and double tail lol.. can you tell what she is? she is small like as tall as a pen is thick maybe an 1in-1.5 long. so she has some growing to do...but im just wondering what she might be

id like to appolagize for the bright watemarks from the flash. i didnt clean off the tanks outside befor adding her XC she looks like a viel maybe a delta to me. i cannot get her to flare or sit still, but she wasnt labeled as anything but female at petsmart [who just had grand opening so i think its likely they dk what they are doing on tail types as i seen a crown male with a lid saying double tail males and so many mix ups]

It would really help if you could get her to flare, but you can't, but there is another way to look at her rays if there are 2 rays on her tail its a veiltale, 3 rays delta, 4 rays its a HMPK or Halfmoon. Here is website that you can see what i mean about rays:) http://bettysplendens.com/articles/p...articleid=1642

Plakats also have 2 rays. So the ray count isn't really helpful. And also there's more if a range of the ray count. not all deltas have just 3 rays... You have a female Veiltail. I can tell by the shape of the anal fin and the ray count
