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.
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.
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.
