Question How do you tell what kind of Betta you have?

I just bought my first betta today and i don't know what kind it is. How can you determine that?

Yep, a veiltail. I agree, that bowl is extremely tiny! If you need something small, at least get a 1-2 gallon bowl.

i knoww. i just ordered the 2.5 gal bowl off walmart so he will be good. but until then i am going to get him a nice vase. that should keep him content until saturday or monday... right? oh and do the betta's tails blow up and shrink sometimes? i am only wondering to see if his fins get any bigger

They can flare their fins or keep them spread. Other times they can close their fins.
I'm glad to hear that you got him a bigger tank! :)
a bigger vase should be just fine until then.

Yeah that's too small. I have that bowl, but just to keep him in when I clean his tank. But I'm glad to hear you're getting a bigger tank
