IDing help? :)

Hi, i'd like some help identifying my girl Rosetta's tail type. The female tails confuse me so much @.@ I put her as VT in my sig, but i'm really not sure..







I see the blackened fin edges in some of the later pictures, i'm treating it with salt e.e I'm too worried to use the Bettafix I have laying around, since some people say it's harmful.. Also, notice how her fins became white? Is that the beginning of marbling..?

She actually looks like a wild coloured plakat. The black and white fin edges seem to be normal with that colour pattern so I would nix the salt altogether since it can be harmful. Real fin rot looks much different - bloody, jagged black fins with holes. If you are still cautious you can use Indian Almond Leaf or a substitute (oak, green tea, black water extract) to prevent any infection.

That being said, you have a gorgeous lady!
