Then you can place it into a bi color or multi color DT class.

Can someone show me what the curved spine fault looks like on a DT please?
Do you think Chalupa has one? This pic was taken with him at rest.
Does it only show when they are swimming? Just curious, I'm not going to breed him either way.

Yup he has one but it's not a big deal. DTs have stubbier bodies so this is common and not to be worried about as long as feeding is as small amounts as possible.

That's good to know about the feeding! Is it because the stomach if bloated pushes against
other organs moreso than in other tail types?

Yup. Bettas have all their organs behind their head so in DTs there's less space for them and cause spinal issues. If DTs are properly bred there's not problem with spinal issues.

Is bloat also found common in CTs because i had a CT that easily got bloated when i would just feed him one a day. if i fed him 2 a day he would get swim bladder diseas.

Do you think DT's also have smaller mouths/throats usually? The only time I have issues with pellet size is with my DTs, even though they are full grown.
