Rosetail (?) Halfmoon and (?) Halfmoon

Since my dilemma here: http://www.bettafish.com/showthread.php?t=79945

I have brought home two new bettas (I will return to get a bigger tank and a divider). I kind of need help identifying them though.

Betta #1




Betta #2






They're both halfmoons, but #2 doesn't look like it... Is the first one a rosetail? There seems to be a problem with his tail, it's missing a chunk but I was told it would grow back eventually. Then I've seen some posts saying their tails may be too heavy which causes their tails to break off @_@... The second one's upper fin is constantly curved on that side (is that normal?) and never fully spreads out even when it flares.

the first one is a halfmoon and the second one i'm not sure.. maybe a veiltail mutt? and whoever said their tails get too heavy and will cause it to break off is completely rediculous.. the only way a tail would "break off" is through finrot which is cause by poor water quality, also rough tank decor or plants can also cause the fin to rip..

it looks like the first one has done some tail biting.. probably out of stress or boredom. some API Stress Coat and AQ Salt will help the regrowth, whatever his little issue is. lots of hiding places will help when you get his tank.


but gorgeous bettas! the second looks like a mutt but he's a pretty mutt. i'm not sure about the fin curling, it could just be him.. keep an eye on it regardless.

The first one had Columnaris. That was what the bite in his tail was. I am devastated. He was a keeper.
