Whiteseam isn't even a thing LOL. White fin edges are extremely common in salamander colored fish.

As for the tail type, he looks like a halfmoon to me. But really, superdeltas and halfmoons have the same genes, a super delta just has less of a caudal spread.

So he's not a whiteseam super delta? I'm not an expert at all on tail types. That's just what he was labeled as at the store. But an LFS making a mistake is certainly not unheard of! I assumed the whiteseam part had to do with the white edging of his fins.
I think he's a super delta, as the fins of a halfmoon spread out at 180 degrees. But like junebug said, super deltas and halfmoons are basically the same thing, except the delta's tail doesn't make the full 180 degree spread, or "halfmoon" tail.

I've yet to see him flare or fully spread his fins...so who knows. Not all that big a deal anyway.

I caught him with his fins spread open a bit.

I'm just lurking but this post makes me want a betta now... *do they do well in a 5g? I've never ran anything smaller than a 10g, I am looking to do a planted 10 soon as I find the right plants. Maybe a betta in a 10 gallon with plants. Oh I hate MTS guess I'm heading back to Google

(edit for spelling)

5 gallons are perfect for bettas. You can use your 10 gallon also.

I agree with Geoff, my betta is in a 5 gallon and it seems the perfect size for him

Awesome, I've been reading up on it since my last post seems pretty doable. Now I need to find a reputable seller near Cincinnati.

Also sorry didn't mean to hijack your thread
