He's so small still it's difficult to get a good picture. I took a closer look at him and he is definitely getting some splits at the end of the rays, but they're so tiny yet that it's no wonder they don't show up on camera.

When we got him we figured he'd probably end up a female veiltail (just the odds of a baby Betta bought from Petco of all places), then were surprised to discover him to be a male...so if he does end up a DeT or HM we would be absolutely delighted with that little surprise!

Wow I am so jealous. Makes me want to go out and get another baby xD. Though my rescued baby is a female vt though she has some stunning colors. Lots of blue, purple, and red. She's so much bigger now though. A good 3 months old and looking like a real beauty, most colorful female I have ever seen. This thread makes me want to go back and try my hand at picking up a boy like him >.<

Looks like there may be some cross in him. Like at some point in his lineage there is a wild type in there. Very nice looking!

Update Photos

These images aren't the best, the front of his tank is dome shaped, so it makes it difficult to get a good shot. As for his fins, he has obviously developed a lot of "spikes," and he is now getting splits on his tail fin. I thought he had stopped developing but these splits just started showing up a few days ago! I guess he's a veil tail, but his tail fin doesn't seem to totally fit that bill so he's probably a cross. I don't know what other tail shape you'd call that!

The first picture is taken with flash, and the second is without. I thought I'd add both just to get the best perspective. Let me know what you think on his tail type!

He is so perfect! A totally beautiful classic vt male, he looks like he could have a little crowntail in him! I just love it when vt's have tails that fall so perfectly like that. Good job:)
