Tail type and gender? It's a baby betta I thoughtfully named squirt.
Got her from my 10 year old cousin who bought 3. All of them were living
in the same cups he bought them in but the other two died. He gave me
this one.

I'm by no means an expert, but it looks like a crowntail. And I'm not sure how to sex fry, but I think it's by the length of its ventral fins--long for boy, short for girl. Don't listen to me if you're told otherwise by someone more competent. :p

it looks like a big ear, but it is hard to tell by the flash, cute betta though :D
i feed mines HBH baby bites, chopped frozen bloodworms, and chopped pellets ;P
i'll take her if you don't wanna LOL!
but she is too small to tell yet, wait until she is bigger to determine

Ooh. Okay, I have the hikari micro pellets, and hikari brine shrimp for it. How much of each should I give it? I've probably been underfeeding it because I didn't want it to get swim bladder. I feed it 4 times a day. Small pinch of the brine and like five teeny pellets. I will buy it whatever food it needs, though and definitely up the ante on the food regimen.

Updated pictures of squirt. Someone asked for pictures showing more fins.

I realize he's too young to determine tail type but I like to see opinions.

Aaah, only time will tell. I've been paying special attention to squirts big little fins lately because of all of this.

My newest is a Big eared HM rosetail but he is still a little young, maybe 5 months old

Sounds nice, I love the sound of a rosetail. Never seen one that I know of though.
Here are a few pictures of Taz, the second one shows the structure of his tail

Woow Gorgeous fish and I love his color.

Yaaay, delta or halfmoon this just makes my day. I can't wait to hopefully see the little bugger grow up.
