Hey everyone, this is my baby boy Nova. My husband and I got him as a baby with no color except stripes from Petco on a whim, I've had many types of fish during my life but never a Betta. I've done hours and hours of researching, and can't seem to figure out what he is, now that he's growing more and getting color. I think he's just beautiful! Any ideas on what type he is??

It's hard to tell at this point, but your fish definitely looks like a boy. I'm guessing he's a veiltail since he it doesn't look like he has many rays on his tail.

He's definitely a boy. When he flares he has a red and black beard that pops out. You can kind of see it from the angle in this picture, but the quality is low. (Cell phone picture, we just moved and the camera is this far MIA)

Females also have beards, but I'm guessing he's a boy because of his fins. They seem long in proportion to his body.

almost certain he's either a VT or PK male judging by the shape of his dorsal and anal fins. certainly not a CT or HM, but it's possible he's a DeT. could you possibly get a closeup of his tail? or if not, can you personally count the ray branches? that would help a LOT in determining his tail type.

Wow what a beauty.

He looks like me might be a veiltail.

He's such an active little guy, it's impossible to count in person! Here's a photo I was lucky to catch of him while he was closer up in the tank. He is not flaring in this photo, so I hope that doesn't make counting the rays more difficult.

it is pretty blurry, i can definitely see one split, but they look really thick, so it might actually be a second split in there. his dorsal fin is way more like that of a delta or HM than a VT, so keep a weather eye on him, he might just blossom!
