So I've named him Kisaki!
I got him today, he was marked as a female betta and I'm 99.99% sure he's a male. Since he was marked as a female I got him for a crazy cheap price!
What would you say his coloration he is?
I know he's an Plakat elephant ear, his tail shape is a bit odd as well, I assume from birth?
He looks like he's got lip and eye makeup, I love it!!

He is absolutely adorable! Yes, it's a he and he looks like a Pink Salamander to me :-D or Pastel Salamander if you prefer. He looks very healthy and eager which is great! And love his make-up too ;-)

I've never had such a pink betta before!
What qualifies a betta as "salamander"?

Salamander is a term to describe a fish that normally has white butterfly edging, although some don't, but they have a darker color on the fin that fades to a lighter color to the body. So his red, or darker pink fading into light pink.

Where I'm from EE's are usually between $30-$60, I got him for $5!!!
All because the store thought he was a female :D. In their defense, they ordered a female and that's what they were sent, either way I'm happy!! :D.
