So if you remember my earlier post, I got Jacob on 1/1/2012. This is him on his first day:




I have learned about a lot about bettas in just half a month. Turns out the lava rock in my take shredded his fins to almost nothing, he was red all over because of the blood loss. Needless to say I removed it and he has only silk plants and a marimo ball. I added low-iodized salt to his tank (i didn't have aquarium or epsom) using the 1tsp/gal method, and he has made a full recovery. He is now eating daily and he is a real pig! I try to feed him sparingly throughout the day because of his appetite. Well anyway here is him this morning, just 18 days later. Note: his fins are still recovering so they look a little weird.

Notice the difference in his marbling:





I am still undecided on his fin type. i checked the sticky and he looks just like the picture for 'Comb' or SDet.

Combtails can be any tail spread(vt, delta,super delta,pk,hm) just means that they have CT somewhere in their line and it causes a comb look to their fins(slight web reduction) While he does have the slight web reduction it's not uber noticeable. ^^

So you can just call him a super delta? Maybe HM if his tail goes to 180 when he flares

Anyway your boy is very nice. <3 I love marbles and the yellow/blue/white looks nice.

Oh okay, I understand now. I was unsure about the whole 'Comb thing". I think he is a super delta then.

Thanks! I really love marbles. I am planning to upgrade to 2 five gallons, and getting another betta for the other tank, and use my current tank (1.5g Tetra) as a QT.
