Here's my DT girl Phoenix


Her fin has been like that for a month now and it hasn't grown back so I thought maybe shes a double tail? lol but seeing your female she cant be one lol

She could potentially carry the gene and have a slight mutation but she doesn't have two lobes even at her peduncle. Even some of the DT's that don't split all the way to the bottom still have two lobes at the peduncle. You can sort of see Phoenix's in the second picture where you see a bump where one lobe is and another below it. Kind of hard to explain, sorry. But yeah, DT's are also notorious of having shorter, thicker bodies

But in any case, she could still carry the gene and hence a little piece of her tail is "missing" but definitely not full DT still pretty though

8 Betta's? Do you know the cause of death? You could have some nasty bacterial infection going on, in which case, you might want to focus on getting your tanks and equipment as clean as you can before getting another rescue.

I'm really sorry about your Betta's though, I know it's hard going through something like that

Im not sure who was the culprit, but I cleaned every thing my bettas came into contact with. Midnight died a few months ago now all I have is Eregon (my superdelta male) left and he is doing wonderful!
