Help me identify the type of my bettas (fin and pattern)

Hey guys I always try to figure out what type of betta by fin and color exactly my bettas are but I'm never sure. I would like to hear your opinion. Also what would you recommend about betta fin regrowth. Some of mine have torn fins and I would like to help them regrow them if I can or do you prefer to just leave it alone? For the light blue female I am 100% sure she is a plakat betta.


Betta names are:
Red male- Phoenix
Blue male - Legolas
Blue yellow male - Neptune

Blue plakat female - Daenerys
Light yellow female - Pandora
Multicolored/reddish female - Fey

Welcome to the Forum!

Can't help with fin type. Sorry.

Healing requires clean, warm water. 2x per week at least 25%. You can add Indian Almond Leaves or Rooibos Tea for their antibacterial properties and SeaChem StressGuard for its antiseptic properties. Brew the Rooibos as you would regular tea to make an extract. You can do the same with the IAL or let it float. A "tea" gets the benefits to them more quickly.

I have had Betta show new growth within a few days; others a few weeks. I guess it's the individual. However, if these females are housed together one must get used to seen torn fins. So keep water especially clean.

Thanks for your reply. I already am using the almond leaves and doing regular water changes. I will also try the other suggestions you made as they seem like they could work. I also always have different experiences with fin regrowth some fishes grow their fins back within days and weeks.
Yes the females are together but they are quite friendly to eachother. The one with the torn fin is new to the "sorority" and had a torn fin when I bought her. Also the male with the yellowish fins is new and also had what seems like a broken fin 😕 Im not sure if that is even possible?

Yes, they can have bent rays. I believe they can be either broken or genetic. @indjo would know more about that than I. Maybe he'll chime in.

You have a good eye; all of your crew are gorgeous. Oh, I believe the new girl is a Red Cambodian (opaque white body with red fins). Might marble out....or not. The yellow girls is a Yellow Cambodian; blue girl might be a marble and change or is a bi-color. Red boy is a Butterfly; blue and yellow boy is a bi-color and one of my favorite color combinations. I believe the last boy may be a Royal Blue. You might double check me on the last.

#1. Cambodian. Not sure of fin type. Very poor condition. Needs extra food and clean water

#2. Yellow, looks like HM (curved anal fin)

#3. Many would call him blue mustard gas. And he looks to have dragon/metallic scales. He also need extra food . . . But in better condition than #1. Probably HM or DeT

#4. Not sure what to call color. Probably HM/DeT

#5. Not really red but can be called red BF HM

#6. Turquoise HM/DeT. May have genetic issues (rose). Try to get a flaring side view picture.

Flare male regularly as fins regrow. This should help neater regrowth. Otherwise fins may grow bent or clamped.

@russelltheshihtzu @indjo thanks so much. As for the ones @indjo said have fin problems I am feeding them high guality food regulary. I hope they heal quick. Yes the last one is the one i have the longest and i could never figure out the fins because they sold him as just halfmoon but he has curly fins but not quite rose... I will try to get a flaring photo. What do you think, will the mustard gas one regrow/heal the top of his caudal fin ? Thanks so much for your help.

Fins will surely regrow. But they may become clamped or bent. Flaring helps fins regrow neater.

Other than genetic, curled fins may be caused by water, especially too hard water. Try more water changes or add RO water. Percentage depends on your water.

@indijo thanks for your help. Yes I always had issues with my water being a little on the harder side. That is probably what it is. I will be making sure I lower the hardness. And will try to get the bettad to flare more
