A lil confused about CTs & terms used

The more I read different threads, the more confused I'm getting... I've seen CTs referred 2 as "Double Ray CT", "King CT", or just CT... Can someone plzzzz explain 2 me the dif, & how 2 tell them apart? I thought a CT is a CT... Didn't kno there r different types!

Well if I understand correctly you have standard CTs.

Double ray CTs are where the rays split into two, Double Double rays are where the split rays split again. King CTs are King/Giant bettas with Crown tails.

People are trying to breed different tail types into CTs to get different looks.

Double ray I think


Double Double ray I think


King/Giant CTs are generally much larger fish, I think also with a shorter caudal fin as well

King Cross Crown tail? The rays cross and is labled as a king (size)


CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG EVERYONE!

All is correct Meade except for the point about King's and their caudals. King's are larger Betta fish, often referred to on AquaBid and here as Giant's, PetCo just named them Kings to make it more fancy. It has nothing to do with their fins except that you can have a Giant PK where fins are shorter or you can have a long finned Giant like the last boy where his fins are normally sized, he's just huge! Often on AquaBid the boy's are very young and their fins still have a LOT of growing to do so that is why they look so short in the pictures.

So to reiterate:
Double Ray: 2 rayed CT that the ray's a close and side by side like the first boy Meade posted. Double Ray's generally go straight out unlike V Rays
(Female)


(Male)


Double Double Ray, also known as Four rayed CT is just that; 4 rays.

V Ray: similar to Double ray where it is a 2 rayed fish but they ray's make a V shape, similar to Cross ray but the ray's do not cross. This girl is a V Ray, it's like the in between of Double Ray and Cross Ray
(Female)


(Male)


Cross Ray: the ray's cross each other like Meade's last boy.

Random Ray: Where the ray's don't particularly follow a specific pattern like this guy, they are just that; random!


CTPK: PK's or Plakat's are short finned Bettas so they are short finned bettas with crowntail finnage like this boy:

Hooray! I got some of it right!

I normally don't post things like that because of my irrational fear of getting things wrong!

CTs are pretty! I've just avoided them.., dunno why... *shrug*

P.S. I was scared I got it all wrong... -_-

No worries Meade! You got it all right minus the King caudal part is all!! And then I added two more to the list that are not normally talked about ^_^

The biggest ones we talk about a lot are Double Ray (DR), Double Double Ray (DDR or 4 ray) and Cross ray
