You can try to find it yourself if you want to. I do not really care about it, just wanted to emphasize that it's body resembles a PK even though it is a VT. You should stop being childish right about now.

This is Rory, one of my VTs. His fins are way messy, I suspect some CT background. He's actually more purple than he looks.

He came from a smaller store, I keep meaning to go in to ask where they get their fish, but they are a ways away from me.

WHy won't that load...sigh.

"Plakats - Male Plakats are short-finned. They have the shape of a halfmoon, but only a quarter of "halfmoon length". The fins are still longer than the females' though. This type is extremely aggressive, and should be kept solitary. Many different betta breeds are described as having a "Plakat body"."

And "spoonhead" you mentioned is a variation of Plakat body type:

That's the point I was trying to make. He's a gorgeous fish, yes, but still not fit breeding stock.

My betta looks a whole lot better. I think yours doesn't look his best on that picture.

You're offensive. Calling me ignorant and childish. You are the one who posted this thread and you are the one making errors, so you can expect to be criticized for those. Simple, really. First of all, wikihow is a compleatly unreliable source, anyone can wright anything. And on the second site, the "body types" they are talking about are just variations of the traditional pla kat. Spoonhead is not a normal or good thing.

Go on...

Tell me more about how the bettas in pet stores will surely die.

All I hear is shouting at people about breeding. You should really relax.

And you really shouldn't breed veil tails. In a community tank. With gravel.

Soady, no one is shouting at anyone. Everything Matt's has said about finnage and body type is true and kindly worded. You've asked for advice, and are now getting mad when we give it.

I took two minutes to take that picture with no mirro. But you can still see his body and fins. Pretty to someone who wants a pet, unfit for breeding. And that is the whole point we've been trying to make; just make sure to know.the difference between breeder and pet.
