Aftermath of breeding

So I finally managed to get my bettas to mate! It was a rough ride, but successful. As I type this there are hundreds of fry swimming around the tank - I know not all of them will survive, but I was hoping to get an idea of what they might look like?

Here are the father and mother - what kind of babies do you think I've got? The father was sold as a HM, and the mother wasn't labelled but I am guessing VT?

Petsmart. I'm pretty sure the male is a HM - that picture doesn't show him spreading out his fins as much as he normally would. The girl... I'm not too sure. Even helping me figure out her true tail type would be beneficial. :)

Sadly not right now. I just took him out of the fry tank today so he's kinda grumpy and depressed at the bottom of his tank right now.

VT? Awesome, it's a start!

Do you have a picture of yours? Are CT/HM offspring as awesome as they sound?

Um, how's it a CT? It's a VT, look at its dorsal.Why are you mixing tail types? The fins of the offspring will be a mess! :0
