I have never seen Blanca's tail reach a full 180. This betta does not flare much, but I have seen it flare & it's close but not 180. Everyone keeps saying HMPKEE though. Going to have to go find a DeT to see what that one is. I'm still learning all the abbreviations & that one does have me stumped. I thought it might be a delta tail, but I was told no on that one somewhere along the line.

DeT is delta tail. That is a betta that has straight tail edges like a halfmoon, but not a full 180 degree spread. A SDet, or a super delta, has close to, but not quite a 180 degree spread.

Just finished searching the threads and finding that out, but I also learned what the caudal is, so all good! So, I could have a SDeTEE male here than. (I was calling both delta & double tails DT)

I'm about 110% sure that it is a MALE. Further, the fact that the anal fin comes to SUCH A SHARP POINT confirms this.

This seems to be the majority opinion. I was hoping for girl, but a boy will do. Just makes another pretty lady to look for when it come time to breed. I think I will get to know my way around aquabid quite well in the future.

Thank you everyone who helped me debate Blanca sex and taught me quite a bit about doing so in the process. (S)he died overnight, so the debate is over for me.
