Hi guys - this is my Betta... Just want to know what you think. Does he look healthy? His fins are always down, never up. Perhaps its the type of specie he is? Also how do I tell if it's male of female in general?

He is a male veiltail - males will almost always have much longer fins than females.

Veiltail betta have droopier fins that trail behind them - they're quite heavy for the fish. I have a male veiltail with a very long tail and i'ts almost always drooping but when he flares he fans it out in full.

So no worries, your betta looks fine.
