So today I went to Petco to pick up a heater for my 10 gallon. I go and peek at the bettas-- and now that I'm in a big city, it turns out, my god-- they've got more than just the standard veiltails! There was a doubletail male who was quite pretty, and there were also some... uh. halfmoons. For 15 dollars or so.

While there were some very pretty guys in there, all the 'halfmoons' offered had really... short, small tails. I'm just wondering... do their fins grow with age? I'm not sure if they were wrongly labeled, if they'll grow, or if it's just the fact that they are Petco fish.

That's about what all of them labled as halfmoons looked like. Just curiousl.

Hmmm... I'm not nearly experienced enough but I've got a couple of DeT that look like that... they have possibility of growing to be a HM. They can have short fins as long as the spread is 180 degrees.. My DeT have a little less than 180 when spread, but as the fish grow older they do grow their fins out more.

Younger bettas have shorter, smaller fins - they grow. :)

Really? I had a halfmoon shipped to me, and within a week, he turned into a super delta. :(
