At the edge of her tail, do you see here the one main ray branches into like 4 sections? Kind of looks like a rake? You want every main ray to branch into the same number of branches.
I think 6-8 is considered ideal with the count, it gives them more room for their tail to spread. Too many rays creates the rosetail look, then feather tail when you get even more branching. I think you can get up to like 12 without any big issues, but it's all something to keep an eye out for
