No guarantee you'll get cambos (though there is a decent possibility).
It's all in the finnage. It can be pretty hard to see- though I believe she is a plakat.
And to see if the male is a HM, we need flaring pics. His caudal fin will need to be a solid half-circle to be qualified as a HM.
In terms of breeding age, the best age is about 3-4 months- but I know people have bred bettas over a year old.
Granted, the fry were not as healthy as they should be, but there is still a good survival rate if you take good care of them.
The bodies of plakats do tend to be slightly bigger than those of the long-finned variety, IME- but not that much of a difference.
