Betta Codes for Dummies

I was wondering if any of you really well informed betta people out there could enlightened the rest of us (not-so-well-informed) on what the betta type codes I've seen mean - like VT, and CT and so forth.

I imagine CT stands for "Crown Tail", not sure what the rest might mean but I would like to know! And maybe I'm not the only clueless one out here :)

(Then again, maybe I am...)

OK, I'll do the basics. :)

VT: Veiltail
CT: Crowntail
DeT: delta tail
DBT or DT: double tail
HM: Halfmoon
HMPK: Halfmoon Plakat
PK: Plakat

Other terms you may hear:

QT: Quarantine
DOA: dead on arrival (for shipping fish)
HOB filter: hang on back filter


I'll write more if I can think of them. :)

Thanks so much for the great answers, it really helps to know some of this terminology. Now I'll know what code to put in my signature if/when I get around to making one :)
