Is My Maggie A Spade Tail?



I used to think she was just a veil tail. But after looking at the tail type thread, I'm wondering if she's a spade tail. Your thoughts?

Also, what color pattern is she?

Using the 'Tails and Colors' thread as my only reference, it certainly looks like a spade. More so than any of the others, at least.

Regardless, that fish is stunning.

Spade she is then. Thanks a lot for the compliments.

I saw her at the pet store and fell in love. Usually I don't like females but she seemed special to me.

I took her home and found out she has a really awesome personality.

Actually, I wouldn't consider this fish a true spade tail, while the tail resembles a spade in shape, that is a very common expression of the veil tail trait in females. True spade tails as well as true rountails are very rare these days because they are recessive to veil tail, and they just aren't popular like they were before the halfmoons and deltas came to dominate betta breeding culture. No one that I know of is working with round tails or spade tails at all. Occasionally, you will see a HMPK with a spade shape, but these aren't really what I consider true spade tails either.

Oh so she just happens to have a spade shaped tail?

Well I'm gonna call her spade tail anyway since that's what she looks like.

And she's definitely a girl. All full of eggs at the moment.

Thanks everyone.
