I used to be a huuuge betta aficionado about 5 years ago (my second Betta living almost 3 years!). But until now I finally decided to try and breed bettas for the first time.
I got a female as a secret santa gift at the office and I decided to go buy my male betta today.
I wanted something really close to white or really close to black. And I found this guy. He was in the VT section (then again, many pet stores don't know what they've got. I once got an albino double tail for a dollar...), but his tail is very short... I thought maybe part of it was broken? Or maybe it's a different type of tail?
The only tails I'm familiar with are veils, crowns and doubles... Maybe someone here can tell me if he's a different type of tail?
Here are some pics (I know his house is a bit small for now, I'm waiting for my sister to bring me my old, large tank this weekend). Can you recognize him that way? Or should I try to get him to flare?
