At the edge of her tail, do you see here the one main ray branches into like 4 sections? Kind of looks like a rake? You want every main ray to branch into the same number of branches.
I think 6-8 is considered ideal with the count, it gives them more room for their tail to spread. Too many rays creates the rosetail look, then feather tail when you get even more branching. I think you can get up to like 12 without any big issues, but it's all something to keep an eye out for

Ah, I see. Hm. So since she has four, that's considered too few? With my male in my picture, does he have excessive branching? Would she be a good match for him, then to balance that out?

You don't want to many but four is fine if the form doesn't suffer.

She actually would be perfect for him. Her having so few would help cut down on his excessive branching.

4 isn't "too few" it's just that the 6-8 range is more ideal.

I wouldn't mind a betta like him.

EDIT: I looked back and saw that Aemaki was bidding on him. Good luck!
