He's full grown. Its possible he may fin out a little more but most likely he is a short fin. He's a little thin actually so maybe once he's fattened up he'll fin out more.

He is very pretty all the same. :D All of my bettas have long flowy fins, I have never had a plakat or short finned betta before... hmmm... Hehe. He's very pretty, I love the blue/yellow look he has in some of the pics.

What is the difference in a short-fin and a plakat? As far as genetics go?

And he is SOOO beautiful, I love that mustard gas coloration and his tail fin is perfect! (to my eyes lol)

Haha he's a pretty boy though. You should totally just name him Jeff. Jeff the betta. Sounds like an exciting fella. :)

I'm not really sure if there is a difference. Short fin is another name for plakat.

The reason I don't say PK is because he's a throwback to PK but comes from two long finned parents (I assume.. I didn't see the parents). He also doesn't have the same look as a PK... anal fin is too long.


I'm thinking of calling him Dan.. as in Lieutenant Dan.

Ahhh ok that's what I was wondering, because I knew he didn't look like a plakat or a half-moon plakat but that's pretty neat how his fins are smaller. I like the way it looks, a lot cleaner than halfmoons like Hector. But that's jmo.

And Dan is a great name!

He is very nice!

Was he kept alone or in a sorority when you thought he was female?

How old was he when you got him, and how old is he now?


Maybe he was always a male and was just misidentified, but there are other possibilites.

All my breeders are kept in 2 gallon tanks so he was by himself as long as I've had him. I believe MartinisMommy keeps her females in sorority but I'm not sure. When he arrived I couldn't see an egg spot but it was in the middle of finals and I wasn't ready to breed so I didn't think much about it and didn't look too hard.

When I got him he was around 3 months old I'd say. I'd have to ask Karen to be sure. I got him and my DT male in November so he's almost 2months older than what he was when I got him.

Here's a pic from when he first arrived. He seems to have finned out when I compared him to the recent pictures.
