I'm a n00b to this site, so go easy on me here. I have a general knowledge of betta care, but I'll admit to being far from an expert.
The pet store I work at just started carrying bettas (crowntail and "fancy" - which I think are veil tails, but our supplier calls them "fancy"). I had been thinking about getting a betta, and since this guy was so pretty, I had to take him home. I couldn't let this one sell to a random customer.
So now I gotta ask: Have you guys seen a tail like this? I've never seen a tail like his before. Is it common or uncommon? I tried looking it up online, but I don't know how to describe it lol
I apologize for the lighting in the first two photos, as it is night time here, but the last photo is in a more natural light, when he was at the store. His color is actually a pink-lavender body with lavender/blue fins. The photos do not do him justice, he has a lot more lavender than blue (iPhones don't do colors well... and I'm a terrible fish photographer
). Though the poor lighting makes his blue spot on his back very clear.
He came with the batch of "fancy" bettas, but I'm very curious what this tail form would be called, or, if it's a mutation, what it would be a mutation of. Any ideas?
