I've been enjoying Squirtle so much I decided to get another baby betta.


Not the best pictures, but it's the best I was able to do tonight. I'll have more tomorrow when he's settled into his tank. :)
I think he's a male veil tail? Possibly a copper?

And a Squirtle update, because he's cute

If you get a flash pic of the new baby, I can color ID it for you. Definitely male, can't see the tail to tell you possible type though.

Here are some more pictures



He's pretty difficult to photograph so far. The flash did go off for these. In the last picture, you can kind of see he has this little indentation or bump in front of his dorsal fin. Do you think that's some kind of spinal deformity?

Yeah, he does have a minor spinal deformity, shouldn't amount to any troubles though. Most of these babies are culls, we all have to remember that!

Looks like he'll be a DeT or possible HM/Super DeT with enough flare training. His anal fin is straighter on the bottom, if it were slanted then I'd be inclined to say VT since that's a VT trait. Dorsal fin isn't super pointed either (except for the protruding rays, as he grows, the membrane will catch up so he's not a CT) like a VT would be, so he's somewhere between DeT and HM Fins too long to be PK as well.

EDIT: Oh and yes, he's a Black Copper.

Cool. :) I'm glad that won't cause any trouble. I was hesitant to get him I was afraid it would be an issue, but he was one of the larger babies. I was a bit concerned that he wasn't doing much when I put him in the tank last night, but now he seems to be pretty active.

Super DeTs and HMs are my favorite tail types. I just hope he doesn't turn into a biter. Most of the HMs I've had in the past were absolute brats who loved shredding their gorgeous tails.
