poor snail, lol, and tail type?


poor little guy got stuck between a leaf and the tank wall and was trying to grab something to pull himself out, don't worry, I moved the leaf right after I took the pic and he started crawling around like nothing had happened

and my little Sven was marked as a VT, but his tail has gotten quite a bit wider since I first got him about a month ago, so I'm not even sure anymore, lol


video

and a pic of when I first got him just as reference

WOW. Thats a really big fin difference! Sven is a big boy! LOL. I don't really know tail types except for the veiltail, crowntail and halfmoon. But isn't a delta almost a halfmoon? Because if it is, thats what Sven looks like to me. (LOL, I'm terrible at tail types)
Hes beautiful either way.
Poor snaily! LOL. Glad you got him un-stuck. LOL XD

Haha,
my snail once needed air and he didn't know how to get off the cup in his tank so I moved the airstone to touch the cup. He right away climbed onto the airstone and crawled to the top.
:)

I am unsure of the tail type your betta is...hmm:
He looks like a half moon but I don't believe he is, they usually have poofy/fluffy fins, I mean reallly poofy/fluffy.
He might still be a vt, they can have slightly different shapes. I love the blue in him!

Actually, I think he's a veiltail. Oftentimes it takes a while for the tail to 'droop' in VTs. Also, he only has two branches in his tail, which says veiltail.

He is gorgeous!! He is definitely a veiltail, you can tell this because of the number of rays in his tail (which is 2) and the shape of this tail. A veiltail with have a tail that curves inward. A delta can have only 2 rays sometimes, but their tails will curve outward.
