    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.

    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'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 10g 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 10g also.

    I agree with Geoff, my betta is in a 5g 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

    Welcome to Fish Lore!!!! Nice to meet you! Pictures of this betta? Hint: It would be best to post them in your own thread, as this one is aging and about a different topic than your new betta.
