Post What 'kind' of betta fish is he?



I could never figure it out, the shape of his tail is kind of square and it never grows out more than that. XD I think they were selling veil tails from where I got him and I know he's not a crowntail though they tried to sell him as a crowntail because he ripped his fins up so badly from the 'little tiny tank dividers' they're supposed to use for getting fish out of the tank- he lived in them at meijers.

But, yeah its a mystery to me. Any help? :)

From the picture it is a little harder to tell.. I would say it is either a Delta Tail or a Veiltail. I'm leaning towards a delta tail though. He has nice colors btw. From the video, the betta there is a veiltail for sure. I couldn't tell if the video is your signature or not lol so I evaluated that as well.

I would get silk plants if I were you, plastic can rip tails very easily.

Also he looks like a delta tail

he's a delta tail, but with strong VT in his background...look at the long, thin dorsal. it looks a lot more like what you'd expect on a VT than anything from the HM family of tail types.

Thanks. I used to own real plants but there were a huge huge huge major problem in my tank and I can't have any again. I tested my fake plants here really well and so far there are no problems at all. I'm watching him carefully however.... :)

That was my older fish who passed away without any explanation as to how or why ): He was my best buddy~ but according to comments I am thinking this guy is a hybrid! :D < 3 thanks for the sweet reply

Yeah I do :) I actually think it'd be fun trading fish, they all have SUCH different personalities and i'm wondering what's all out there still :) :)
