I think I wound up with a PK female today leaving Petco. She was in a terribly filthy cup with most of her fins missing/rotting. Her cup was labeled as a VT male. My first thought was that there was no way this fish with hardly any fins and stress stripes was a male VT, maybe a female just with bad fins. After looking at her closer when I got her home and in the tank I noticed her head shape, overall size and dorsal fin placement were different than my VT females. I'll have to post a pic soon. Maybe you guys can help me decipher the mystery.

Hermes looks like a cambodian from afar,but when in front of you he looks lavender.He has turquoise iridescence in his rays.I think if a betta has iridescence that excludes them from being a cambodian?I'm not certainso let if you do!


I think he may be a marble seeing he has some dark red and blue speckling. So cute!!

Eeeps! You got him!! <3 He is gorgeous, I can't wait to see him in person!

Our Pets Unlimited has lots of female VT (right now it's blue and red combodians) and lots of male VTs (mostly blue and red, some multi/red/mg) but lately there have been crowntails/dragon VT/double tails. Still no plakats.

Thank You Pixel!

And just to say, if for some reason he turns out to be female, I have plenty of space in the sorority lol Are we sure there's no eggspot?


Ohh and I see this posted, but males do get stress stripes too. My Hughie is a Male VT and he stripes up whenever I touch his water in his tank. He's such a worry wort.

Oh I am sure he is a juvi male.He flares with mega beard and he crosses his ventral fins as he flares.He acts JUST Like Hermes did.The stripes are consistent with both genders at this age. He's around an inch at the moment.
