Question Fry tail type?

At what age should it become apparent what tail type your baby betta IS? Like, at what age does crowntail begin to show up, what age does double tail become apparent...are there ways to know before their color comes in...just curious

If you look closely, they show their tail type since a young age. You can determine DT's since they are 1/2cm. CT should have tiny protruding rays. While other tail types look more "neat cut" sort of way. At this age their colors haven't really developed yet.

What do you mean by DT's being a 1/2 cm...do you mean their tails are 1/2 cm long...

When the fry are 1/2 a cm long. You can see DT very early on, CT can be harder to see until they fry are a bit bigger unless you have a magnifying glass.

HM you won't see until the fry are much larger as that is achieved primarily through flaring and stretching the webbing between the rays.

hmmmm...I'm starting to wonder just what my baby is going to be...he is just a bit longer than 1 cm and I don't see anything that really tells me what he's going to be. Both parents where crown tail double tail delta crosses...

I am thinking i will try to get a clear pic. of the little guy, see if anybody has any opinions of him...

scratch that, both parents were single tail crown tails that looked like they both had double tail genetics...just to clarify(I think I made it sound like they were double tails ) Still trying to get a clear pic. Its so hard to get a good one when they are so small...
