Question HM or Rosetail? White or Opaque?

When I first bought Yuki, his cup was marked "Premium Betta". It was hard to tell in that little cup, but I thought he was a Halfmoom.

But when I posted pictures of Yuki here, a couple of people said they thought he was a Rosetail. And others said he's a HM. I'm hoping I can get a consensus on his tail type so I know!

Also, I was looking at the Tails & Colours sticky, and I noticed there are a couple of different types of white betta. How can I tell if he's a White or an Opaque?

Sorry about the pic...I took it with my cell phone, and the lighting wasn't great, but I had just exercised him with a mirror, and for like 10 minutes after he was strutting his stuff around the tank. He suddenly stopped swimming, spread his fins, and just hovered there like he was waiting for me to take his picture! LOL



You can see his colour better in this pic I took last week with a better camera and a flash...

I cant say that I am 100% correct but what I think a rosetail is.. is a halfmoon with a bit more branching.

I'd say he is a big ear rosetail :) Those are one of my favorite bettas too.. What a beautiful boy you have!

Yup, he definitely has big ears! That was one of the reasons I had to get him...it looked like he was waving me over to the shelf wear he was sitting! LOL

He is platinum white, looks to me like his fins are very ratty, possibly fin rot, so really can't tell if he is a rosetail or not, would need a closeup pic either way, I'm working with platinum whites now, but i would def start treating him for fin rot, may just be the angle of the pics but I don't think so

Could also be biting. I see a good number of fin biting cases at my local petco. I would treat fro biting aswell.

Looks just a beautiful big ear rose tail to me, his fins are huge, a tail bitter usually has clean U shapes or extremely tragedy fins.

Compare him to this fish

Thanks, copperarabian...this tail on this betta is exactly like Yuki's. My last betta was a tail biter...Luke's tail looks nothing like his did.

So I guess he's definitely a Rosetail then. Platinum white sounds good too!
