Betta types

Now I've done a lot of searching on the internet to try to find information on what type of bettas my girls are... and, I don't seem to find many (or any) pictures that show the various tail types when it comes to the females.

So, could anyone tell me what kind of bettas my girls are?

I think that all 5 are the same 'type' ... and I think it has something to do with the shape of the tail fins - but, what am I supposed to look for to know what type they are (for females)?

thanks.

That's good news. :)

I just love these girls. They've got great personalities - the two I showed above, are always at the front of the tank when I come in the room - checking to see what I'm doing (or maybe it's just asking to be fed) - but, now that I've discovered that I over feed them, I'm down to only giving them food in the morning now...

The other 3 are a little more shy. Sometimes I have to hunt to find Baby and Ruby... They seem to put a lot of effort in swimming among the floaters.

Has anyone had luck in mixing different betta type girls together? If I were to attempt to add a different type, would she be ganged on, if she's 'different'? (Could I introduce one, this late? ... since the 5 all came in together - would introducing one 2 weeks later be a 'no-go'? )
