None of my comments are rude just wondering as you did ask. we couldnt pssibly tell you any more on his tail unless you can get DECENT pictures of him fully spread and flared up.
and frankly the way you wrote your reply sounds a little rude. i glanced at the picture and as stated its hard to see because hes not flared or fully side on.
Next time, before asking for help on tail type, try getting a side on fully flared picture. It will be easier to see.
Again NO OFFENSE IS MEANT
I understand how petstore breeding works. Your comment about the picture was very rude, and I do take offense. He's adjusting to a new tank, I feel it's a bad time for vanity shots. But if you look closely even in this pic you can see the clear divide at the end of the tail, which is in fact a double tail.
My prior comment wasn't meant to be rude, and you said "I did ask" but again, I wasn't questioning the double tail. I was questioning if he's truly a half moon.
And yes, I take large offense. This comment was rude and unnecessary. I'm sorry if my original comment was mistaken as rude; again, I was clarifying that I was NOT in fact questioning the double tail.
Is this a clearer shot for you? I took it at the same time. I do not feel comfortable making new fish flare an hour into being in a new tank. I'm not sure what the white spot on his nose is; in real life it's not there.
Please don't insult someone and then say no offense like it'll make things better. I do find your comments rude and insulting and would like it if you would refrain from such on a thread where I'm asking for opinions, not insults on quick photography. Thank you.
