What Tail Shape?



Can't figure it out! Is it a delta?

OH and I snapped a pic of this at my local PetCo:


The funniest part is all of the cups labeled "Halfmoon" are actually Delta Tails and all of the cups labeled "Delta Tail" are actually Double Tails!
And it's like that at EVERY PetCo I go to! Not to mention, the picture of the Halfmoon on the cup label looks NOTHING like the "Halfmoon" they have displayed on the sign there :]

Looks almost like a cross between veil and delta tail. I am jealous, seems like your pet store has such a better collection then mine does

i got that particular one at walmart, along with another of mine. the other 3 came from the petco and they do actually tend to have bettas that are different from what i usually see. most of them are usually in good shape, but there are always some sickly ones :/

petsmarts bettas ALL look identicle and walmarts are usually mostly dead. lame!

Halfmoons and deltas are so alike its hard to tell them apart sometimes. Many of them are mislabeled (even at my petco). And thos may be double tails but they are double tails that open to a delta span.

This is also common because they are in dirty, cold water and clamp their fins.

that may be the case most of the time, but every double tail i saw was a double veil tail. i guess the part that is lame is that they charge almost double for the 'halfmoons' and some are them are VERY obviously not halfmoons.
