i was just wondering if there is such a betta with a tail type where all three fins are fused one one large fin???

i heard it was called a fused tail betta and is really rare, but i can't find a picture of one.

Not that i know of, i think that would require some genetic work to fuse the differnt genes, also the parents would have to be carrying all the genes split between each othe. There is certin added effects that can effect a bettas tail such as being comb or double but not a combo of all the tails then we would have to write cthmsddvtrt lol fun.

It is possible, but very rare. It is probably not so much a genetic mishap that can be bred for but also an environmental issue. My copper delta's caudal is fused with his anal fin for about an inch. I've never seen a full blown fused fin betta though.

i think that it would be a very rare mishap for the betta, im not sure how rare but id assume it would cause some swimming issues

Fused tails mostly refers to just that, tails. I have a very large spawn of Doubletails with a few various faults in their tails. From smaller upper lobes to,.... you guessed it; fused tails.
