Halfmoon or delta tail?

    I bought this guy a couple weeks ago from Petco. His cup said he's a delta tail but when he flares he looks kind of halfmoonish. So yeah, I can't really tell which one he is. Ah yes, his name is RedRum II. lol

    Sorry these aren't very good, he wouldn't fully flare for the camera.



    Kahlua and the betta. Guess the betta doesn't like my bird.

    Super Delta...maybe?

    My official guess ( only a guess ) would be half moon.

    I have a hard time telling the difference between some of them.

    He sure is pretty !!!

    Hmm I didn't even think of a super delta. Now he's more of a mystery. lol

    It definitely is not a delta. I'm sure about this. Chances are more that he is a halfmoon. But I have a feeling that he maybe a cock tailed betta. He is very gorgeous.


    P.S. My bettas hate the camera. They go away behind a plant whenever I try to click a photo.

    I meant crown tailed. My LFS keeper calls them cocktailed. So I keep getting confused.

    Congrats, RedRum II is so beautiful.. I think, he is a delta tail -maybe a super delta-.

    He is definitly not a crowntail, I think it may be a rosetail or a delta though I am not that good yet at telling tail types.

    He is definitely a half moon. Pet stores mark things wrong don't they, I'm sure I have a Delta here that was marked as a Veil Tail.
    By the way he is exceptionally gorgeous! What finnage! Jaw dropping! :)

    Yay, he's a halfmoon! I went to Petco originally looking for a halfmoon but they didn't get their shipment in, then I saw him and he was the only red one in the bunch and I had to have him.

    I'll try to get some better pics of him fully flared.
