As I said in the other thread your fish are VT. Tail type is determined by ray count for the most part and both of your fish clearly only have 2 ray branches which makes them VT. Neither of them had any apparent web reduction to make it seem like they had any CT crossed into them either.

Some VT have wider caudal bases but that doesn't make them any thing other than VT.

As to the colors, they're both considered multicolors. Neither of them were "dalmatian" which is a solid (usually orange) body with dark red spots. Some also call white bettas with black spots Dalmatians also... but it's just another made up name.

Okay so if HM cannot cross, what exactly is a "halfsun"? Just saying. Anyways, it's up in "betta pictures". I am not an expert, okay? I just own bettas. I just recently learned of different "tails" and different color combinations like "dalmation" or "tri-color" or "mask".

I'm so sorry :( but that doesnt mean it will hurt him, I've seen lots of fish have tumors and live extreamly long lives. :) I'm sure he will be ok too.

Except I watch it progress :( it used to be "just his marking" but it's started to "bubble?" (if that's the right word D:) and it's visible from the other side. It's near his tail rather than chest, luckily. Otherwise I doubt he'd be as active and hungry as he is xD

Well if it's by the tail it may not affect him at all!! He will be ok :) Do you still plan to have him spawn and have cute many spartans?

I am definitely not giving up on breeding him. It WAS his first time, as it was Madame's. And I do not care if people say bettas "don't pair up" Madame only seems to like HIM (figure that out -.- ) and vice versa. Same with "Mollies don't pair" yet I had one male, who liked HIS one female. All the others went untouched!!!

Some bettas do in fact pair up together, I had a couple a few years back that did, if I had them any where else they would be very down.. rarely swimming. I tried everything to, mirrors, other bettas, live food, nothing worked. But then I also had bettas would spawn with any other O_o It all depends on the personality i guess.. When Spartan spawns with her keep me updated! I'd love to see how it goes :) and I really wanna see how the fry turn out :)

-edited because i'm obviously way behind and dn't see the other pages-

However, if he has a tumor are you sure you should breed him? t may affect the offspring?
