Update on Hermes * Pic Heavy*

Ok so I got Hermes, previously known as Hermiette, Last month. I purchased him as a female vt and boy did I get a surprise.


Here he is as a wee juvi.





And here he is as much more masculine adult. Still growing, so maybe teen?

*Also have been noticing his tail-fin is not so round anymore..more spade-like...please tell me your thoughts!


The light makes one of his colors look blue. It is actually a purple-blue/ lavender.

I am assuming that he is a Cambodian like marble.

I've had one plakat girl. All the rest of my bettas are VT - except for 4/6 females, who are known combtails and have gone through a half inch growth spurt x.x maybe the other 2 with be combtail too =D I've never seen a plakat boy here o.o you sure are lucky

And I believe yours is a cambodian? or no?

Gorgeous boy. :3 I love PKs.

Yup, he is indeed a cambodian. And you mentioned that his tail-fin (caudal, yes?) is looked more spade-like... not sure if this answers your thoughts or not but he's a regular PK. :P He's just developing more.

o.o I'm not even sure of VT rays o_O lol I have all VT males, but each tail to itself is different as they are just "plain ol' pet store bettas". Shadow has small single rays, actually so does Ghengis and Juniper. o_O

Thanks for all the compliments!


I read though that cambodians have to have one solid color. Like pale body and solid red fins. He does have the gene though. I think hes more marblish seeing his colors change every few days. He almost purple now.


I've heard that some breeders use pks to strengthen rays on other fin types...who knows
