Eh for the heck of it :lol: He has VT droop, usually....when he sleeps....but mainly holds himself grand xD I love him. Lol. I got him as a veil tail, but as you can tell from the photos his caudal is very....round. Someone mentioned round tail on "Skull and Big Red" but I'd like to ask you guys - because you'd know more than me :) I know VT, crowntail, double tail, and halfmoon.... That's about it =D


And yes his one fin had been chewed....he was a new shipment when i got him ;-)

he'd definitely have to have VT in him xD

I was told..... spade was another tail in the VT grouping, basically aimed at the unique shape? -if I remember correct-

Okay....explain a round tail. How, what? :lol: I've never SEEN a round tail in person o.o When he started flaring more I was shocked to see a purty tail I don't see in any VT males xDD

Either a round tail or a very young, very heavy finned VT male. He still hasn't come into his full potential yet.

His tail is changing!

First I apologize for the bad pictures. Some reason the camera is hating any fake light and today there is NO natural light from outside :roll: what a gloomy day outside!! I tried my best and took a good 30 pictures and finally gave up...

So the black lining on his tail (not fin rot or anything!) is breaking away to make way! :shock: He doesn't look like a roundtail anymore. I have never seen a betta's tail grow or anything, other than Crayola's but his was length, nothing more. His is getting WIDER... along with the black is breaking away to make way for it to be longer.

So, now I dunno :lol: although it is interesting to watch these changes take hold literally every day...

Wow! that is quite something. I've never had a fish young enough to watch their tail grow/finish forming before. I bet I'm going to see a ton of changes in Smeagol in the next handful of weeks too.

Agreed. He has the spread but he's veil.

When it comes to dominant vs recessive genes there is no "cross". VT to HM = all VT or two ray DeTs which produce more VTs.

Ahhh ok, thanks Mr. Vampire and Luimeril :) If he had HM in the line that'd be fine with me xD He WAS bought as a VT anyways hehe. I passed down a bad store's mislabelled pretty HM for him :roll: and I don't regret it :)

Becky, I thought round tail too because of his tail, but seeing as it grew out, it just proved he's just a baby =D Wouldn't surprise me if his fins become longer too. We'll just have to see =D

well if veiltail is a betta subspecies, then doesnt that make round, spade and "flowing rectangular" subspecies of a subspecies? or am I just overcomplicating things?I just thought that was a funny thought!
