Ohhhhhhhhhhh! My girl Shimmer is pretty big, and EXTREMELY hardy. I always put it down to being a PetsMart "mutt" fish. But now I have reason to suspect that she may be plakat or plakat cross. I can't believe I never figured it out! I may be owning a plakat and never have known it! Well this is a pleasant surprise. Here is a pic if anyone can confirm it for me. She looks a little samller because of her position:

I could be wrong. But she looks like a VT (I would say spade tail but heard thats not a true tail type?)

Yeah that would explain it as well. Besides plakats veiltails are the most basic betta fin types that I know of. They have no embellishments, they are just them. Also veiltails are the most common bettas at petstores.
