if his tail looks like a D then he is a halfmoon plakat.

Is there a sure way of telling the female is actually a plakat, im just curious to know and if the male is a half moon? will plakats get bigger then regular bettas? they are about 6 months old, is this a good breeding age?

Lovely pair.

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.
