I don't know how (s)he managed it unless (s)he's a tail biter, but Phoenix has managed to take a couple of small chunks out of his/her tail.
Some darker spots have started coming in on the anal and dorsal fins, and when (s)he turns they flash gold.

I thought my baby had torn her fins once but really it was just fin growth - sometimes part of the fins grow faster than the others making it look like a chunk is missing. Really it just hasn't grown in yet. She looks great and her gold/red shimmer is beautiful!

Yeah TOC that looks like a tail biter to me but probably nothing to worry about.

I see the start of fin rot on the dorsal though, hopefully enough frequent water changes will help that

I swear these little stinkers double in size overnight! I left Alaric for 2 nights (with someone to feed him for me) and I couldn't hardly believe he was the same fish! :) I think he's going to be a crown tail by the way his fins look now - I'll take a couple of new pictures and post them later.

Phoenix is looking good :) Can't wait til she starts showing more color!

He was happily swimming around as I was trying to get pictures of him so these are the best I could get! What do you guys think - crown tail?

Oh man, reading through this thread makes me want to get a baby of my own, once my tank is ready! (I actually might keep it in my 2 gal QT for the first month or two, just to make water changes easier.)

Looks like VT to me with maybe some CT down the genetic pike, possibly might be a Combtail but more often than not VT's will have ray's that stick out just like that, making them not perfect VT's but they're still VT's. But there's always a possibility since he looks like he has a long way to grow still!

Oh cool - I didn't know that VTs had lil rays like that. And yeah, he has quite a bit to grow yet - I just like speculating :)

I'm avoiding PetCo like the plague right now because I'm broke and I know if I see a baby DT I'm not going to be able to leave it there lol I've definitely caught the betta fever!

lilnaugrim - Phoenix has had that on the edge of the dorsal since I picked him/her up. It hasn't changed so I'm not stressing over it. I clean the tank every other day so if it is rot it'll clear up, but the coloring on the rest of the fins suggests it may actually be pigment 0.o Guess we'll find out!
P.S. Tiffany, Alaric so beautiful! Goodness! He's getting big so quickly.
