    Hi all, im fairly new here so i hope im posting this in the right place!
    I cant work out if my stunning blue Betta is a Vale tail or a Crown tail or perhaps
    a mix of both? His fins separate towards the bottom, hence my asking you :)
    He was actually sold to me as a female, but he started blowing bubble
    nests a couple of months later, so i was told he is a rouge male? Could this be right?
    Below are two links of photos i just took of him, sorry for the flash.. I wont mind if you
    tell me how beautiful he is too because i know he is :p
    Btw, he is the most aggressive Betta i own, wants to kill anything that moves lol

    That is a BEAUTIFUL betta
    It looks like a crown tail to me, and yes I would say he's defiantly male

    Thank u!!! His my baby that's for sure!!
    Hm yes i think he looks a bit crown tail to me too, but i dont think his a pure crown tail though. Must be a cross breed perhaps. :)

    Possibly, he didn't look like a pure crown tail, but I wasn't sure :)

    Hi all, i did ask another time what tail type this betta is but i cant find that thread anywhere.
    Could you please help me know what he is? I just got him to flair up for me and took this photo. I think he might be a turquoise Rose tail? At first i thought he was a veil tail crossed with crown tail... Im so confused :eek:

    If he is a Rose or Feather tailed betta, would this explain why his is always resting on the plant or on the gravel because his fins are so heavy?

    He is a crown till. His fins look like that due to fin curls, I would be doing daily water changes because it look like he has some fin rot. That could be adding to the "rose" look.

    Oh no :(
    Poor Buley, i thought the red tints in his tail were part of his colors! I just read up about the fin rot here, should i move him to a tank by himself? His currently in my quad tank with 3 other betta males. I didn't read it but is the fin rot contagious? Does it look bad to you? I cant tell. What should i do?
    And thank you for identifying him!!
