Can anyone say what tail type and gender my baby betta fish will be?

Tried to take some pics but really hard to get Emperor Speckles to stand still.

You need to get his fins unclamped. I don't see a heater in his tank. Is it heated? That may be part of why he's clamped up. You could also try showing him a mirror and getting him to flare. Otherwise we won't be able to tell what he is.

It also depends on the female you select. I've heard anecdotally that much of the form is from the mother.

Thats actually him flaring out against a mirror in some of the pictures though the end of his tail is a bit translucent butterfly sort of pattern with purple on the inside. He's actually a rescue and have had him since he was even tinier... so far he's grown well but is very courageously timid whenever new objects come by his tank. He pulls in his tail whenever he is curious about a new object and swims to it then flairs back out when he realizes its safe and gets comfortable.. And yes its heated. Usually without any interference his tail always appears flared as with the pics in the mirror.

It's a female. Probably HM or DeT, can't tell without an actual flare picture including her beard, not just fins spread out.

Gorgeous!!!

To me, it looks like a female Delta Tail. (Maybe Super Delta?) Someone correct me if I'm wrong :)
She also looks like a marble to me! Although I could be wrong ;) Can't wait to see how she turns out!
