Meet Asiago

Hey guys, just got my fish/chi fluval like a week and a half ago.

What type of betta do you guys think it is? I think its a mix of a half moon/comb tail. Im not sure tho. Im new to fish and bettas.

Also, anyone think the fading on the edges of his bottom fins look weird? maybe Im just over analyzing but I dont think it was that noticable when i first got him. Also, he has grown a lot more silver onto his body and fins since i bought him.

Also on his dorsal he has a dark stip that doesnt match his pattern, which was there when i got him.

Very pretty fish you've got -- and his name is epic.

I wish I could offer insight as to what kind of betta he is but alas, I'm just a noobie learning all this stuff for myself too!

He is a crowntail, which means he has rays that extend from the main portions of his fins, as for colour, he is a metallic silver copper, very much like my own betta boy Mars:



It's normal for crowntail rays to sometimes thin out, due to water quality, bu it won't affect him. What a beautiful boy!

Here are some articles on Crowntails to help you out :)
