Clear close ups of their tails might help... I cant tell from those really... Multiple branches ( how many times the ray divides from the base of the tail out) on the end of their tail is a sign of a delta or HM
Sushi looks like she might have more then VT in her, I cant tell if Bettazillais from the photo and Butterbuns photo is to far away though she looks like a round tail...
Here is a pic of one of my HM females so you can see the branches on her tail

whenever i try for close ups they come out blurry...

Hmm..they look different from your pic though.

By multiple branches, do you mean like the way her lines in her tail fin divide into two? If so, india is the only one that has that..she also came from walmart and had a horrible case of SBD.


or do you mean how yours has a more ruffled look near the fin edge. *is confused*

Your looking for the number of times they divide. My girls divides three times meaning she has 8 rays which is commmon in HM's, it is what helps create that 180* spread in HM's. VT usually divide only once and have 2 rays on the end. Most delta's have 4-8 rays.

That's what I though too...
Amaratsu, which I am sure is a VT - has a longer more oval shaped tail and so does Rarity. These girls have more rounded tails but they don;t have branching rays, I don't think...

ETA

This is the best I can get of a tail.
SO I present to you..Butterbuns..er...BUTT
