Haha cute! Yeah they do look alike Mystique except yours is a bit thicker :) My female Bella also has the same two shiny stripes on her gill covers, what is that?

Those are just creases, if you notice when a Betta flares, the stripe closest to their mouth is where the gill "creases", all Betta's have them although some are less noticeable for example your girl Bella (cute name by the way) has silverish ones where one of my girls Aurora has red ones. It's all with their coloring and nothing to worry about :)

I've also heard it say that the second patch on the gill itself will turn more red when the female is severely ticked off at something, but I'm not sure if that's entirely true or not :)

DT is delta tail, although some put DeT for Delta and DT for double, can be confusing.

EDIT: although I don't agree with Delta Tail, I believe she's definitely an older Veil Tail because it is nearly identical to my proven Veiltail.

I don't think she's a delta tail female? I think she's veil tail.
