hmmm his caudal fins do look relatively long ot be a shortfin plakat. Get him to flare, and see if his caudal fin stretches out 180 degrees! :) if its a little under that, he's prolly a super delta. *** I have a "super delta" named Izume that reached like 160 degrees when he was a baby, and as he got older it reached a full 180 degrees- and still does. Idk why that was, but maybe if your boy gets a lil growing done that can happen to him too!!!

How do you get them to flare? I tried a mirror and Conan was like...whatever and just swam away. He also won't flare at my finger, he just swims to it a waits to see if I am going to feed him.

LOL... bettas are piggies, all they ever want is food.


hmmm..... here are some ways I make my fish flare:

a. adjacent male betta
b. adjacent female betta
c. A mirror
d. The light on my camera
e. My finger...but then they bite! :'(


hmmmm see, some bettas have different personalities! Some are all peaceful and compatible with others, some are the opposite. Some random items can upset or scare a betta fish. One of mine, Mr. Jappi.....HATES my finger and the camera!! He gets scared of the camera so he flares, creeps closer like he is gonna bite, and then he bumps his head on the tank!! X'D One of my bettafish pal's fish hates a plushie of the herpes virus and red nail polish 0.o The mirror is the most effective and common ;) He may just be peaceful and chill fish, im surprised the mirror didnt do it.

Yeah...no reaction out of him at all with the mirror. I guess that's kinda good if he is that laid back since he is in a community tank. At least I don't have to worry about him ripping apart any of my other fish/shrimp.
