Pictures are difficult to get of the largest female. She's constantly on the move. But I did take a video which contains the first two fish you asked about, as well as my favourite female (and a few of their other non-betta friends!)

All the females in my tank flare quite often... you can even see them flaring in the video!

Here is a video of just the second female: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RGRXwD25fkw

Never mind me thinking they were boys. LOL Now that I saw the videos I take back that question. haha

They are gorgeous!! I have never had girls that had such long pectorals or were so beefy. :)

Thank you! #4 is my favourite, I just adore her colouring. Black sand is the best, you definitely should give it a go!

Haha, you are not the first person to think the first fish was a plakat. She's a big girl - I've never seen a female her size... or a male for that matter. Hehe


A quick question for everybody: Are they all veiltails?

I don't think any of them are VT's actually, they all look like (female of course!) Plakats.

Really! Hmm... That is very interesting. Plakats are my favourite! I bought them at 2 different stores in 3 different trips so that's pretty impressive if they are all plakats.

I'll have to change it to the Blue Gill PK Group!

I agree that they seem like plakats, but I'm not the best at determining that stuff so I keep my mouth shut :p
