The tail stand she does I guess could be cute, but really I'm inspired by how much energy she has. She's definitely figured out how to use the glass stones to rest on and breathe easier, but I'm glad to see her take breaths of air from the deeper part too.

I really want to get her away from the bottom though...she rests a lot still, despite being so active. Is this mostly cause of the sbd? I really want to give her more water, but she seems to still be struggling a bit.

I'm most concerned when she's swimming about close to the substrate, and she'll rest and kind of roll a little. Sometimes completely on her side, but soon she's off going about again. And I also found out she can make some really tight turns that I would think be almost painful in her condition, but she does them frequently in each corner, going back and forth.

I think the cutest thing is when I was half-asleep watching her and she kind of just sat there perched on her fins watching me back every little bit.

Thanks. I wish I could find her a shallower, but longer tank. This 3g is nice, but it's deep. But there's no alternatives for the time being.

There's just the beginning of vertical stripes on her! =D

I've also been trying to figure out what type of betta she is, kind of hard with the dorsal torn like that. Which I'm surprised it hasn't grown at all since the damage was done in the summer?

But I think judging by the coloration and the shape of the base and front part and how it would naturally grow..she may be a vt female or an imbellis. o.O Open to suggestions, as I'm really new to females.

Sorry 0 percent chance of her being Imbellis. Now domestic Bettas are a cross of B.Smarginia, B.Splendens, and B.Imbellis. Imbellis would have died in last care. One would not end up in pet stores unless the prevous owner shops in Asia.

Za, thought the info I was reading was a bit mixed. So maybe she is a vt...it'd be easier if she wasn't always scuttling close to the bottom. Though she's so cute when she rushes over to check me out.

Right now she looks like VT but when she recovers she may look a different type.
