meet my halfmoon betta, Edward :)

hello, i'm new here :)

I got him at petsmart a few months ago and he's a halfmoon betta...I think.

He looks like the normal male betta type...is he really a half moon? What do you think?

But I still fell in love for this little guy...I named him Edward ^__^

He's a little shy in the camera sometimes. :)

we would need a good side shot picture of him flaring to tell for sure, but he looks more like a delta or super delta to me. Try to grab a pic of him flaring!

i'll try...but he doesn't flare! )o_o(
I have never seen him flaring at me or at a mirror...everytime I put him a mirror he just ignores it or look at it and just swim away...but i'll do my best!

does anyone have a betta that doesn't flare?

I don't know why he doesn't flare...I added him a mirror but he doesn't seem to care that there's a mirror close to him. o_o

here's a pictures of him almost...flaring?...I'm not sure...he never showed me his angry betta face XD

He's a cutie! I have one that has never flared in the 3 months that I've had him.

get a little mirror to put in or around his tank, he will think it is another male and will defend for territory

You'll have to try different things that make them flare. Lakitu wouldn't flare at his reflection either- I got him to flare by pointing a pen at him once, and from there he would flare at my finger.
Bowser gets soooo big at his reflection, Ludendorff doesn't really care for it though.

MandiceP: hahaha wow XD
I hope your cat only stares at his tank and not at him :)

Edward doesn't seem to care looking at the mirror...I guess time will tell when he decides to show off his fins

He's not a regular/vail tail. He's defiantly somewhere between delta and HM, but unless you get him to flare-fully(to see the full spread of his tail) we can't tell for sure.
