Question Crossbred betta?

Is it possible to have a crossbred betta?

Reason I'm asking is because Dumbledore looks like a Spadetail, but has a long dorsal like a Veiltail. He doesn't hold still long enough for a picture, but I have one that isn't terribly blurry.



So, what kind of fish do I have?! I always thought he was a veil, but when I read the sticky about different tail types his tail doesn't hang down as far as VT. Maybe he just isn't grown up yet?

It is possible to have a Cross-bred Betta. Your Betta seems to be a Veiltail to me. Spadetails have a much wider Caudal Fin than Veiltails.

he is not a crossbred. a crossbred is when you breed a splenden to a imbellis (i don't think i spelled that right)
it's a finnage of a splenden, am not sure. Spades aren't they just deformations of the veiltail? correct me if am wrong am not fully sure about it

Spade was just listed in the sticky in Betta Care forum, I don't really know. And of course I got to looking at my fish and wondering what he really was. Walmart just names them all "Male betta" but 99.9% of them are VTs, although you can't really tell due to all their fins half rotted off anyway :(.

All pet bettas are Betta splendens.

There's over 70 known species of the betta genus. And more being discovered.

That is a veil tail.

I believe there are three varieties of the veiltail (as yet known), common veiltail, spade tail, round tail.

Eh no. Those are all separate. VT, spade, and round are different. Round tails are pretty much deltas.
