Talking Beautiful New (Spade Tail?) Betta

His name is Patriot I think. I've only had him for about 3 hours.



When I was floating him in his cup in my main tank to see if he had any issues in his fines, some slight fin rot on his top fin and a few pin holes in his tail I noticed his tail fanned out and then ended in a sharp point. Much like a spade would look. However I didn't take pics to confirm this as I didn't want to stress him even more by leaving him in there a long time.
He's feisty much like my February so they won't be sharing a divided tank. XD

Any name ideas would be greatly appreciated as I'm not sure I like Patriot for this fish.

Yes for now he is in a small .5 gallon tank till I can get my 20g and get it all set up.

he looks like a veil tail they can have points at the ends of their tails as well... spade tails are uncommon so it would be very unlikely he's a spade tail since he is from walmart!! he is very pretty!! do you have anything else to put him in until you get the 20g set up even a vase or rubbermaid tub would be better!!! if you don't have anything else then I would suggest 100% daily or every other day with the poop and extra food being scooped out water changes

No all my vases are beyond help, tried those first, I have one other fish here that is in Quarintine for a gill inflamation that I can't get to go away, but that Fish is in my only 1g. But he gets 100% daily now so that won't really be an issue.

Not sure about the VT though. I was looking on this sites fin and coloration sticky cause I wasn't to sure cause when flared he looks NOTHING like my one VT. Looked a lot like the spade. Ill try to get him to flare maybe in a few days so he can recoup a bit.

Thanks. Kinda hoping he'll perk up once I can heal him enough to put him in the 20g.

I have Aquarium Salt and Stress Coat in his water. I mixed a gallons worth of water for him and change it everyday. Can't really tell if his fins are healing or not as he keeps them closed and hides when I'm in the room (poor thing is afraid of me I think). I'm gonna try and get him into a 20g either tonight or tomorrow and see if he perks up then.
