I don't think he's a rosetail. He's just BARELY a Half moon. But he does have the wavy edges on the tail like rosetails have. I think he'll be happier now that I have him in a 3 gallon, though. He seems to be a little more active now. I hope he ends up with more personality than he has now, and that he'll actually EAT something! lol
Rosetails are not always halfmoons or overhalfmoons. In fact, rosetails often lose their caudal spread relatively early in life. Whatever tail type your betta is, I hope he comes around and starts acting like a healthy betta should.
Well what a pretty lil guy you got there! I have always enjoyed their beauty but I dont think I would ever own one. For whatever reason I prefer the VT. I see my pets like I see my kids. They may do something wrong and I may be disapointed in them but I will love them regardless. We cant "return to sender" our kids so why do it to our pets lol
Yeah, I like my halfmoon but he is a tailbiter and a slow swimmer. For this reason I only buy HMPK's and CT's. Although mine has a funny personality. He is fierce if he sees another betta, but he is deathly afraid of frogs and shrimp. LOL
He might just need a little bit of time. My crowntail took about 5 days before he turned into a prima donna. He just kind of sat on his heater for the first 2 days after he explored, then he floated around a bit for the next couple days. They take a little bit to turn into proper bettas.
