Her tail ... IT HAS GROWN! (Pics)

So. Cinderella.
I've posted about her before with the questioning to if she was male or female and what her tail type is. She has now completely changed her tail type again and I'm still questioning her gender (leaning toward male even though she does have a white spot -- and yes I know, males can have them as well) but I'm not really questioning her gender today it's more her tail ...

I noticed it changing a few days before we moved, it seemed like she was tail biting or turning into a CT on closer inspection it looked like there was clear film still connecting the tail together -- so this worried me even more. I left it, I kept an eye on her and then got lost within moving as well as King's pop eye but now we've swapped their spots over and she has a light over head? I had to look twice at her and jaw dropped at her massive tail.

I still gender her as female because i'm so used to it...

Anyway, I'll show pictures - I also have a video to show as well if anyone is interested, the question is .. Is she still considered a HMPK?


Photo #1: Top photo is from a few weeks beforehand and bottom is from earlier tonight, notice the added length.



Photo #2 & #3 are tail photos to show the clear film connecting the tail still.

The clear film is nothing to be worried about when you see it growing on a bettas fins so long as it is growing off them and connected - it is usually always new growth where damaged fins are growing back or existing fins are going through a growth spurt.

I am pretty sure your Cinderella is Princess Charming by the looks of the fins on herhe :) I'd say she is a delta tail or halfmoon male but the fins are to long to be a PK right now I think.

I think you're right, I'm just so surprised since we bought her out of a sorority tank. Any way of completely knowing what tail type it is?

We've established this, it's just the tail type I'm curious of.
He'll still be Cinderella.

I was thinking that as well. The tail is still growing from what I can tell and when he flares it's more uh ... Extravagant then half moon.

I have this video of him flaring a month ago;

It just seems like his tail type has changed completely.
