Female Tail Types?

How can you tell the difference between say, a VT female and a delta/super delta female?? I know there is a way, but I really don't have the eye for it haha.

I've always assumed my three LPS females were VT's, but Marbles' tail is way wider than my other girls. Any ideas?





These were taken shortly after I got them, her colours are way more vibrant now...Friggin marbles changing colour!! lmao. The bottom photo features Rainbow, on the right. She loooves the camera LOL

did you check under "betta fish care"? there's a thread that has the tails and colors broken down... it's still difficult so i understand if you already checked it and still don't know... i have that same problem.

best way to tell, is to get a REALLY good pic of her tail, and check out the ray branching.

Hahaha I've got that problem too, but 3 of them like the camera, and they crowd it all at once rofl. ITs a jumble of red, white and rainbow! D: This is the best I could get.

Yea thats what I'm seeing too..damn. Haha! I don't really wanna breed VT's to my HM's or my PK because of the vt taking over. I need more women! XD
Thanks tho! When I first bought her, she was pure white bodied with a teensy bit of red on her, but I guess the marbling gene kicked in as she grew and now she's got alot of irridescence and red on her. And black lips! Tempted to call her Betty Boop instead of Marbles haha

i was gonna breed VT to HM when i do my orange dal line, simply because it's so hard to find orange dal girls. you'll end up with Veils, and i was told Deltas, which can be flared to full HM. :V

Orange dalmatians are soooo beautiful!! I messed up with the description tho haha. This is the boy I was gunna spawn her with, he's not a HM but I think their colours combined could be pretty awesome. Its the tails I have an issue with XD
