Wink Mew's new sister

Soooo since I felt so bad about the fish I lost the other day, my boyfriend offered to take me out to Petco to buy me another... He's the best. I know. Be jealous. lol
And I found a very pretty one... Looks oddly similar to one I already own, just a different tail type. She was labeled as a VT female, which she doesn't look like to me. I'm thinking she's a delta, but I really can't tell for sure.

Also, she's definitely a female... right? Her dorsal looks like a female's, but her egg spot was way too difficult to find. I'll let you be the judge. I'm quarantining her for a couple of weeks in one of my gallon QT tanks before I add her with the other girls. Enough of my rambling, here she is!

Acclimating in her temp home




Here you can kiiiiinda see her egg spot.


As you probably already know, more pictures to come in this thread, but for now I'm going to let her get settled!

But yes I'd like response on what tail type she is, and I'm pretty sure she's a female, but if you think differently let me know. k thanks! :)

WHEW. I figured she was just a heavyset female at the store since she's got the same body type as 2 of my PK girls... but when I got her home I kinda got a bit worried about it just being another male PK... It's happened to me before. *cough* Rikku *cough* ... lol

Thanks guys! I'm surprised I found another fish with a similar color combo to Mew, but the new one is a butterfly. My first!

I noticed her rays only separated into two but she doesn't look like a VT at all! Sooo this is my first combtail too lol :)
No idea what I'm going to call her yet, but ideas as always are appreciated!

Is it possible they came from the same breeder... maybe they really are sisters... or cousins, or aunt and niece...

As for names... Mew2 XD Lol, I'm joking...

Ummm, she seems like a Deluge to me :)
